We could, if we mark it the same way as we do other extensions.  If we
do remove _GLIBCXX_DEPRECATED then, we might also want to test for it
somewhere and print a warning that it no longer does anything, since it
must be the user explicitly defining it in that case.

I've changed the list back to libstdc++ to see what others think.


Behind everything some further thing is found, forever; thus the tree behind
the bird, stone beneath soil, the sun behind Urth.  Behind our efforts, let
there be found our efforts.
