We also might want to add something like the following to the man pages
of the (now) obsolete drivers:

--- man/fentonups.8 (revision 609)
+++ man/fentonups.8 (working copy)
@@ -2,6 +2,9 @@
 fentonups \- Driver for Fenton Technologies (Megatec protocol) UPS
+This driver is obsolete and has been replaced by the \fBmegatec\fR(8)
+driver. It will be removed somewhere in the near future.
 This man page only documents the hardware\(hyspecific features of the
 fentonups driver.  For information about the core driver, see

Best regards, Arjen
