if a function continues to work correctly throughout the span of a Python X version, why does it need to be removed?   I have a foggy memory but I don't seem to recall functions that were technically redundant being aggressively deprecated in the 2.x series.   This warning is causing a lot of downstream pain right now and this is after we already all had to deal with getargspec() going away.
