            Bug ID: 3392487
           Summary: Outdated context-local variable fall-through
           Product: NASM
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: OPEN
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: nobody at nasm.us

3352 Context fall-through lookup (automatic searching of outer contexts)
3353 is a feature that was added in NASM version 0.98.03. Unfortunately,
3354 this feature is unintuitive and can result in buggy code that would
3355 have otherwise been prevented by NASM's error reporting. As a result,
3356 this feature has been \e{deprecated}. NASM version 2.09 will issue a
3357 warning when usage of this \e{deprecated} feature is detected. Starting
3358 with NASM version 2.10, usage of this \e{deprecated} feature will simply
3359 result in an \e{expression syntax error}.

I think that depending on the status of the preprocessor's handling, this
either should be updated to note that current versions do no longer support
this, or the version number for the future version that'll drop support should
be updated.
