[kwlug-disc] dealing with deprecated pear modules

  among other things, getting into PHP and pear modules and,
occasionally, after installing a module based on some documentation,
i'm told that that module is deprecated in favour of a newer one, but
the old one is still installed, as in:

  Net_URL deprecated in favour of Net_URL2

is it acceptable to then just remove the old one and install the new
one?  is that upgrade completely backward compatible?  thanks.
