Ok, you can finish the migration process then.

It would also make it difficult to refactor your patch series if there
is a big move or renaming in the middle.

Yeah, you can do both a move and a renaming.

Ok.

We could alternatively just emit a warning, but it looks like there
are a lot of die() calls already in ref-filter.c, so I would suggest
die().

For now and I think until the migration process is finished, you could
just die() in case of any atom not already supported by the command.

I think that looking at the existing documentation and tests is
probably the best way to learn about it.
