The doc says:

> 'u' will be removed together with the rest of the Py_UNICODE API.
> Deprecated since version 3.3, will be removed in version 4.0.
> https://docs.python.org/3/library/array.html

But DeprecationWarning is not raised yet.  Let's raise it.

* 3.8 -- PendingDeprecationWarning
* 3.9 -- DeprecationWarning
* 4.0 or 3.10 -- Remove it.

'4.0' is a stand-in for 'sometime after 2.7.final', scheduled for Jan 2020.  A Pending... for 3.8.0, scheduled for Oct 2019, seems reasonable to me.  Perhaps we should have a pydev discussion for the general issue of post 2.7 removals of already deprecated items.
