There's a good deal of code using it that we just don't see because it's "internal-only". When the API disappears, making people revisit that code is particularly pointless; it's makework. OTOH, if the API is not going to disappear, we should just undeprecate it. But anyway, all I can do is register my concern, you're gonna do whatever you do. ;-)I am on your side, Chris. But, I fear, we will not be heard... I fight pointless deprecation warnings with global deprecation warning deactivation -- probably not what deprecation advocates hope for.
With the argumentation that some old code might break with deprecated APIs you can fight almost against any kind of deprecation. We could possibly discuss and find some rules (specific for the Zope 2 needs) at Python if some of you guys show up in Dallas later this month. Andreas
