I like all your proposals but the last.
C-c C-f has -- for a very long time -- been one of the most important
It's ok to *plan* to *eventually* remove it,
but as with important changes in R, this *definitely* needs a
deprecation period of at least one year. Many of us good S and R
programmers write functions "all the time", and have had ingrained
C-c C-f long before C-c C-c (or even C-M-x) came along at all.
The deprecation in the first phase would mean to have it work as
previously with an additional
"beep"+deprecation message; the 2nd phase would still keep the
deprecation message, but the user would have to use the new command
(say C-c C-c).
(Yes, I'm in vacations and typically do *not* have / take time to
follow e-mail discussions, this week)
