A number of commands were deprecated between v2 and v3, some were just
renamed.  However, that crux of this problem is that this pass-through
was ever done in the first place.  This is the only place in OSc that
we did this rather than just copy the code between the API version
modules.  IMO that is what we need to finally do to fix this, complete
the actual duplication of the v2 bits still being called by v3 in the
v3 directories.

Again, folks wanted to avoid doing the work to set up v3 properly, now
the debt collector comes calling...I would hold off doing anything
with the docs until the code and tests have been properly straightened
