Support explicitly deprecated component attributes

Reported by Christopher Stawarz | July 25th, 2012 @ 10:47 AM

For attributes like variable's full_name and editable, which are parsed but not used, it'd be nice to have a way to explicitly mark them as deprecated in the component definition. That way, existing experiments that contain the attributes would still parse, but MWorks could warn about the deprecated attributes so that (1) it's clear that they don't do anything, and (2) the user knows that they should remove them from the experiment.

Since the warnings could be annoying to users with existing experiments that they'd rather not modify, we should probably included a switch to silence them (e.g. a new global variable named #warnAboutDeprecatedAttributes).
