prettylst.pl comes darn close, in that it warns you what the
deprecated syntax is. It's always tricky for any automated process
to guess what you "mean" by a given tag syntax.
On the other hand, PCGen usually runs two different versions that
are publically available; the production release -- currently 5.8.1,
soon to be 5.10 -- and the development release -- currently 5.9.8,
should become 5.11(?) -- and with the rapid changes over the past
few versions, what may be deprecated syntax for 5.9.8 may be
required syntax in 5.8.1. (And what may be required syntax in 5.9.8
may not even exist in 5.8.1!)
Perhaps if we do get some Perl monkeys to step up and help with
prettylst, it can grow to the point where it can attempt to do such
a thing. Me, I've simply developed several minor, highly customized
(e.g., not really portable) scripts that use prettylst to help with
my dataset development.
