Quite welcomed.

I've updated ldap_abandon_ext(3) to reflect how I think
we should handle documentation of non-deprecated and
deprecated interfaces.   For the latter, I prefer only
a brief statement saying X was deprecated in favor of
Y, along with a statement about the LDAP_DEPRECATED
macro.  That is, I see no need to continue providing
a detailed manual for deprecated routines.
