Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.  However, I would want people to do a tiny
bit of work to get the wrappers.  Something like:

       use MIME::Defang::Deprecated;

at the top of your filter to pull in the deprecated API functions.  This
provides the admin with documentation that at some point, he/she should
get around to updating the filter.
