With Rails 3, we had a number of method-defined scopes along these
lines:

def self.with_name(name)
  if name.present?
    where(name: name)
  else
    scoped
  end
end

In Rails 4, `Model#scoped` is obviously deprecated and recommends
replacing
with `Model#all`. But it looks like `Relation#all` is deprecated as
well.
What's the "right" way to do this in Rails 4?

Looking at the code and docs, the best approach I've found is to use
`where(nil)` but that doesn't feel particularly idiomatic. Any better
approaches?

Thanks much,
Jeremy
