It's not.

We rarely deprecate syntax, and we should at least give people a
chance to move away from the old syntax first to the new first, so
we'll have to support both for a bit at least. When we do deprecate
the old way of doing things, I think we'll just use

In the long run it'd be nice to have a formal grammar for Cython and
use a generated parser rather than maintaining this all by hand, but
Parsing.py does more than just parsing at the moment.
