Seems more of a people problem than a software problem. That's normal. Why not just use a comment that says "Don't use this. It will break."? If people can't obey simple instructions, you have a different problem entirely.

Code completion doesn't necessarily read comments. Why would people read the headers before using?

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
