Template:fr-conj-*, except Template:fr-conj-auto

I have converted all usages of almost all the old French conjugation templates to use Template:fr-conj-auto, and will shortly be done with the few remaining usages. I did this by bot, checking to make sure that no conjugated forms changed in the process (and doing it that way, caught some bugs both in the old templates and new module code). One of the big advantages of the new module code is that it provides pronunciations of all the forms, which the old templates didn't do. It's also generally easier to add new verb types, or at least it is a few lines of code vs. having to manually enter all the forms into a template. I would like to delete all the old templates since they have become lots of hard-to-maintain cruft. When working on similar conversions to Russian noun, verb and adjective inflection templates I just went ahead and deleted the old templates but I know that Dan prefers keeping old templates so I want to make sure there is consensus to delete them.

Support, but not to be done hastily, only when the module is ready. Renard Migrant (talk) 16:38, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
BTW currently absolutely everything is converted except for copier-coller. Benwing2 (talk) 21:52, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Any objection to me removing everything except for Template:fr-conj-copier-coller? Benwing2 (talk) 23:47, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
No, feel free to do away with obsoleted templates if you're sure everything is as it should be. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 02:12, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
OK, I'm going to delete them. Benwing2 (talk) 15:42, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Oops, I didn't actually delete them. I'll have to recheck them before deleting to make sure new verbs haven't been snuck in. Benwing2 (talk) 15:22, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
