As amusing as that last suggestion is, I believe the word you are
searching for is "deprecated", not "decrepit".  At any rate, the main
reason so many redundant/outdated/unused macros exist is that one can
never be sure whether individuals who code their own muds might be using
them.  C does not have a formal deprecation concept built in to the
language (as Java and some others do), but I think deprecating some old
macros is probably a worth the effort.
