I haven't seen much of that. One place I did is in deprecating
subtransactions, where many paths thru the ZODB code have to pass on
the original "is this a sub or a 'real' transaction?" flag. In those
cases, the relevant methods also grew an optional `deprecation_wng`
argument defaulting to True, and _internal_ calls to such methods
explicitly pass "deprecation_wng=False".

No; the `warnings` module doesn't even import the `traceback` module,
let alone use it. You can print a traceback yourself by using the
`traceback` module, and if you're determined enough you could replace
warnings.showwarning() with a function of your own (see the docs for
warnings.showwarning, and possible for traceback.print_stack).
