Package: libjack-dev
Version: 0.116.2+svn3592-2
Severity: wishlist

Functions such as jack_client_new() are marked in *comments* as deprecated.
They should be marked as deprecated such that the compiler will notice and
emit appropriate warnings should any of them be used.

(Reason: I've received a patch for xine-lib which makes it use the newer API,
and I would probably have noticed and maybe even fixed this myself, or at
least filed a bug report so that it didn't get forgotten, had I seen a
"jack_client_new is deprecated" warning at compile time.)
