DeprecatedInstanceVariableProxy transforms an instance variable into a deprecated one. It takes an instance of a class, a method on that class and an instance variable. It optionally takes a deprecator as the last argument. The deprecator defaults to ActiveSupport::Deprecator if none is specified.

class Example
  def initialize
    @request = ActiveSupport::Deprecation::DeprecatedInstanceVariableProxy.new(self, :request, :@request)
    @_request = :special_request
  end

  def request
    @_request
  end

  def old_request
    @request
  end
end
