As in, don't start a "deprecation cycle" (warning in 3.3, deprecated in 3.4, gone in 3.5), just document "consider using this other function instead"?  That's probably worth doing.  I wouldn't use the word "deprecated" though, I'd just suggest a "see also".

Maybe we could remove the redundant functions in 4.0.  I'll put it on my wishlist :)
