Personally I'm with Clement in this. The deprecation was poorly handled,
and the feature currently has no replacement. Michael uses it for
debugging, so removing it does not seem productive.
But, also agreeing with Clement, this should absolutely be ported to the
codecview filter before the next bump, or it will be removed.
