A year suits me fine if it were the *actual* deprecation period, rather
than the six-month deprecation cycle as is the case with zLOG and the
eight-month deprecation cycle as is the case with 'methods'.
Currently adding a deprecation in a release doesn't automatically equate
to a year's grace period, because people seem to assume they can
deprecate a feature in a very late point release of the current stable
branch and deprecate it exactly two releases later. Which in a
time-based cycle is always shorter than a year, because the point
release of the stable branch happens concurrently with development of
the next major release.
