> So consider me +1 for deprecate in 3.8 (we can still do that, right? it's just docs and a warning on use) and remove in 3.9 or 3.10 as appropriate.

I modified my PR to deprecate the feature in Python 3.8. I'm not sure about scheduling the removal yet, since the Python 3.9 release schedule is under discussion:

I would prefer to give at least 2 years to projects to update their (how they are distributed). Even if bdist_wininst has issues, it's not too painful to maintain a few more years. The removal can be decided later.
