I think it would be pretty possible to add "deprecated" flags to
particular entries in loadparm:

	&sDefault.bRead_only, NULL, NULL, 0},

causing a warning message to be printed out on startup, perhaps with a
URL or documentation reference for more information on migration.
On the other hand many sysadmins will never look at logfiles or even
stderr, so it's not a perfect solution.
