We've been using OBSOLETE() in config.c to mark options that used to be supported but which are no longer recognized. Maybe we should retire options that have been dead for over a certain number of years?

I removed all options, declared in config.c, that were marked as obsolete more than one year ago.

AFAIK unit tests are ok.

I've been a little more conservative, and tweaked your patch to only remove the OBSOLETE markers for options that have been obsolete since 0.2.3.x or earlier, since versions older than 0.2.3.x are now completely unsupported. Also, I've checked it in. Thanks!
