For the GUI, and the manual page, I think it would be better if the
functionality is removed completely. Presenting an option that is really
not available would, i.m.h.o. be confusing.

For command line use, it is good to get a error with pointer to
v.generalize if users attempt to use 'prune' in v.clean. Especially
important to warn people properly if using this in a script.
For legacy reasons, it is furthermore probably good to mention in the Note
section of the help file that this function has been removed and that the
user can use v.generalize for this.

Just my 2ct.
