I have the same opinion as you have, but it leads me to to 
conclusion Jani made: start deprecating the function now, and 
get rid of it in 4.1. This is my reasoning:

if mysql_db_query() gives warning now, and is removed altogether
in 4.1, the behavior you seem to pursue is achieved: a function
is there for the whole minor version lifespan, and is removed
right with the next major version.

But, of course, you might have meant you wanted mysql_db_query
to give warnings through the whole 4.1 period, and leave it 
out with 4.2.

So, what did you mean exactly?
