Documentation and a new kind of deprecation warning.  It's
documentation-deprecated in one version, one later a real deprecation
warning appears that sticks around for a couple of versions.  The
documentation would explain how to hide the deprecation warning and
tells the user to better use more modern alternatives.

This of course requires packaging to work flawlessly first which I
consider to be high priority.
