How do you label code to be deleted in KF6?

I have seen:

#include <kcalendercore_version.h>

I think kcalendercore_version.h and similar are created by ecm_setup_version() 
and similar functions in CMakeLists.txt files.

I have seen comments like the following:

// TODO Remove when no longer needed

where TODO may be replaced by ###, FIXME, QT6, KF6, KF5.99, ABI, BIC, etc.

I think the QT_VERSION_CHECK method is useful here, because it provides the 
functionality you need.
Because it has functionality, it is the only consistent method which can be 
searched with `git grep QT_VERSION_CHECK`.
