Right, my thinking was that it would still be documented in the manpage,
just lower down. And that would probably say something like "save is a
historical synonym for push, except that it differs in these ways...".

I don't think there's any reason to go slow in marking something as
deprecated. It's the part where we follow up and remove or change the
feature that must take a while.
