I recommend a longer deprecation cycle than usual for this, as this will break many legacy libraries that don't get maintained often. A period of two years sounds about right.

For Phobos, that _is_ the normal length of the deprecation cycle. For the language itself, I don't think that it's anywhere near as consistent, but I've gotten the impression that deprecations in the language usually stick around for quite awhile, but I haven't exactly tracked it closely, so I don't know.

All of the recent Phobos deprecations have been a year. 18 months at most.
