What a tremendous waste of time and inane exercise. AFAICT, this is a zero value add.

Also, we try to avoid these sort of search-and-replace exercises because 1) they are not part of holistic refactoring (Guido's term for making changes while you're working on a particular module, not whole-sale sweep), 2) they risk getting it wrong and 3) it obfuscates the "svn ann" output making it more difficult to tell who did the original work.

The goal is of "have these methods raise errors if used during *regrtest* runs, so that core-Python developers no longer use them" is a worthless one.  Raising errors for this sort of thing wastes the time of developers who are trying to get real work done.
