 Sure, but there's been no sign of deprecation. The codex and
 wp_load_alloptions() inline docs even denote the difference between the
 two, which means a plugin author might still use it, even choosing to use
 it over wp_load_alloptions() due to the difference. While the repository
 is a good guideline, not all plugins out there are on wordpress.org.

 Best I can tell, wp_load_alloptions() should be a named replacement.
 Generally, it seems we run down this checklist:

 1. Is the functionality and return value of the replacement (if
 applicable) roughly compatible? If yes, return the replacement. If no:

 2. Does the deprecated function still perform an action? If it still does
 something: leave it as is and only name the replacement (if applicable).
 If no:

 3. The function no longer provides any functionality, so strip it down to
 nothing. (See get_autotoggle() as an example.)

 Seems the first one applies here.
