    C<Parrot_pmc_new_constant_init> and C<Parrot_pmc_new_constant_init_int>
    will be removed.

    PObj flag C<PObj_constant_FLAG> and related macros will be removed.

  name : 'Non-const STRING* arguments'
  eligible : '3.1'
  note :
    Due to the immutable nature of STRINGs we are changing the internal handling to use only
    const STRING pointers. This will improve optimizations possibilities for compilers,
    and make parrot const-correct.

    Passing of non-const STRING* arguments is deprecated and will be changed to
    const STRING*. This includes (but is not limited to) all string API functions,
    VTABLEs, PCC, etc

  note :
    The PMC returned by C<compreg "PIR"> is not going to be an NCI PMC any longer,
    it will be a new type of PMC which conforms to PDD31 and will be similar to
    HLLCompiler.
    
    There will not be a PASM compreg anymore.

-
  name : 'Interpreter API cleanup'
  note :
    All functions that were defined in parrot/interpreter.h have been renamed in order
    to follow the project's coding standards.

    Functions that began with "Parrot_" now begin with "Parrot_interp_"
    For example, function C<Parrot_new> has been renamed to C<Parrot_interp_new>.

    Also, "Parrot_interp_" has been prepended to all functions that didn't begin with
    "Parrot_" for consistency. For example, function C<allocate_interpreter> has been
    renamed to C<Parrot_interp_allocate_interpreter>.

    Other than the above changes, the below functions were also renamed to make their
    purpose more clear:
        * C<interpinfo> -> C<Parrot_interp_info>
        * C<Parrot_int_get_interp_from_pmc> -> C<Parrot_interp_get_from_pmc>
