Very good point.  It's actually not easy in general to figure that
out.  To help with this particular issue, I just checked in code to
master and 0.25-fixes that adds extra logging output if this
deprecated situation is encountered.  If you're running 0.25-fixes
v0.25.2-8-g3256849 or later, or master v0.26-alpha-35-g7b1aef8 or
later, you can run mythfrontend with "-v vbi" and watch
mythfrontend.log for occurrences of DEPRECATED_608_TELETEXT during
playback with captions enabled.  If nothing shows up, the planned
change won't affect you.
