Any comments about this?

You know my views on this. :) Leave it and we start to consistently use if for deprecations that are more than a release away from removal (and for those not reading discuss.python.org, I proposed over there introducing a warnings._deprecate() function for the stdlib which will do the right thing based on sys.version_info() and the stated start/end for the deprecation).

It might also make sense to hold off on anything official until we decide on something like PEP 387 and how we want to officially communicate deprecations.


I want to document PendingDeprecationWarning is deprecated [1].
May I merge the PR?  Should I start poll on discuss.python.org?
