Here's an alternative proposal: Instead of adding attributes to each
function manually, we could write a script which adds and removes the
attributes on demand. If folks want to test for deprecated functions,
unchecked errors, or other problems, they can use this script. The
script would work like lint. We could even integrate this script into
our test suite, if we want.

Cheers,

David
