Unless there is a drop-in replacement, I don't think this should be deprecated or removed.  Our biggest problem in the Python world is getting organizations using Python 2 to switch to Python 3.  Deprecating modules that have been a part of the firmament for a long time works against that goal.  

Side note: a quick search shows that people are still writing SMTPD modules in other languages (i.e. Go now has one)
