[ #276 ]
I found this in the perlapi manpage:

AvFILL   Same as "av_len()". Deprecated, use "av_len()" instead.

Then I grepped for AvFILL in the source .... There are about 20 occurrences. I wonder how many more of these deprecated features are still in the internals. It'd be an interesting task to go through perlapi and patch the source to remove uses of deprecated functions and macros.
