I don't think deprecating 'first' and 'last' is appropriate here:  they
*aren't* synonyms for 'start' and 'end;  they are used to implement
sort-break processing.  Here is the comment from the checkin which
initially documented them
(http://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zpt/2001-December/002598.html):

I'm pretty sure that such changes ought to be proposed on the 'zpt'
list, as they are germane outside Zope's own ZPT implementation.
