Personally, I think it would be better to focus the limited
documentation time/energy we have toward documenting
non-deprecated code (and discussing how to write clients
using non-deprecated code).

But as I've noted before, (code and documentation) developers
should work on what they need/want...  and, if its generally
useful, it will find its way into OpenLDAP Software (and/or
other materials provided by the Project).  That is, don't
let my (or other statements) stop anyone from working on
what they need/want.
