msg66596 - (view) Author: Humberto Diógenes (hdiogenes) * Date: 2008-05-11 02:49 has one section marked as "classes from the original 
module (for backward compatibility)", which are all listed as deprecated 
in the module documentation.

In issue 756982, A. M. Kuchling agreed that "removing those old classes in 
3.0 would be very sensible." I've attached a patch to do that, removing 
the only test that broke (test_unix_mbox).

I think we should add a deprecation warning for those classes in 2.6, 

As we're not removing the whole module, what's the right place to put 
that? On the __init__ method of each class?

I added a deprecation notice to the docs. That should be enough.
