    I don’t see the need for an if block or renaming the function and leaving it there. It is extra unnecessary work for the compiler. Comments are probably the best way. Might also copy the current file, put the original in some folder like “old”, and delete the old code inside the new copy.

      Comments are the worst as they are ignored by refactoring. That’s the reason if (false) is actually really good for temporarily disabled code.
