I believe that smtpd is used for a *lot* of testing code (anyone who is writing smtp clients in python, pretty much, and probably some writing in other languages).  I really don't see the rationale for removing it, assuming we can rewrite it "in time".

On the other hand, are we really going to *remove* asyncore/asynchat?  Or is this a "deprecation in place" like optparse?  If the latter then I don't really care if the same is done to smtpd :)  If the former, why, if we've kept optparse?
