#' Deprecated functions

#' These functions are deprecated and will be removed in a future release. The 
#' \strong{Arguments} section below provides details on how the functionality 
#' obtained via each of the arguments has been replaced.

#' @param prior_scale_for_dispersion,min_prior_scale,scaled Arguments to 
#'   deprecated \code{prior_options} function. The functionality provided 
#'   by the now deprecated \code{prior_options} function has been replaced 
#'   as follows:

#'    Instead of using the \code{prior_scale_for_dispersion} argument to 
#'    \code{prior_options}, priors for these parameters can now be 
#'    specified directly when calling \code{\link{stan_glm}} (or
#'    \code{\link{stan_glmer}}, etc.) using the new \code{prior_aux}
#'    argument.
#'   }
#'   \item{\code{scaled}}{
#'    Instead of setting \code{prior_options(scaled=FALSE)}, internal rescaling
#'    is now toggled using the new \code{autoscale} arguments to
#'    \code{\link{normal}}, \code{\link{student_t}}, and \code{\link{cauchy}} 
#'    (the other prior distributions do not support 'autoscale').
#'   }
#'   \item{\code{min_prior_scale}}{
#'    No replacement. \code{min_prior_scale} (the minimum possible scale
#'    parameter value that be used for priors) is now fixed to \code{1e-12}.
