  Correct. Depreciating subdir would potentially break testsuites even
if you made it work with the GNU toolchain tests.

That is why there would be a very long deprecation period before it is actually removed. Or an "API level" could be introduced, with testsuites expected to declare the API version that they expect. (No declaration is "legacy/ancient" API level.)

I would not expect it to be actually removed before 2.0.
