Based on the argument of Stephan that we might not remember how the deprecated feature worked, it might be hard to maintain it for a very long deprecation period. I think it might not be enough to just leave the code around but we'll have to do something to keep it working (with the same semantics) in the new version. But this is a case-by-case issue. I for myself think 12 months is ok. I wouldn't do a shorter period, but I won't ask for a longer period. On projects that are stable and work on a certain version of a platform we stopped upgrading the whole environment all the time anyway. Even during development.
