In general, we should have a strong aversion to deprecation except in cases where something is actually broken.   API changes make it more difficult for people to migrate to Python 3 or to upgrade between minor releases.  

The longer an API has existed, the more pronounced are effects of changing it (invalidating published references, killing weakly maintained projects, and affecting more code that we may not know about).
