Hi, all. It has been 3.5 long years since we introduced the Transitional Syntax, and there is some very obsolete syntax I would like to remove: funcenum and functag.

These have been replaced by typeset and typedef respectively, and their syntax is much cleaner [1]. The code to implement the old syntax is over ten years old and a complete mess. After this proposed change, the old funcenum and functag keywords would not work at all. Using them would abort with a link to the wiki page. Very few plugins will be using either of these keywords, and updating (or using old compilers) is easy.

If you have any feedback that would suggest we should not make this change, please let me know. Otherwise I will proceed with removing the old syntax in a week or so [2].
