Hmm... I still use <> exclusively for my code, and I wouldn't really
like it getting deprecated. At least for me, != is more difficult to see
when browsing source than <> is, as != has a striking similarity to ==,
at least at the first glance...

I know <> has been deprecated for long, but I'd much rather have both
syntaxes allowed, also for the future...

But anyway, I guess the way until it will be deprecated is still a long
one, so I won't bother to protest more now... :)
