No matter what period we decide on it will always be too short for some

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'.
As the person who added the deprecation warning for 'methods':
If you calculate the deprecation cycle from the day the warning was
added I agree it is too short. Reading the sources I had the impression
that the fact there was no warning for the deprecated feature was a bug
and I did consider my change a bugfix. Without warning it was already
deprecated for many years.
I'm fine with extending the deprecation period by one more release cycle.
