Yes, although it can be viewed as a bugfix, it's impossible on Python 2. We _can_ do it on Python 2 too, with

    def __new__(cls, numerator=0, denominator=None, *empty, _normalize=True):
        if empty:
            raise TypeError('too many positional arguments')

but I'm not interested in it [and honestly, I'm sick of uglifying my code just to be able to run it on Py2]. Also, Mark Dickinson said ( it shouldn't even be changed on Py3.5, so surely then it shouldn't be changed on Py2.7. :-)

I think no deprecation is needed: it isn't (, and as far as I know has never been, documented.
