Could these be removed for 3k?
I agree with others who say that we shouldn't do this for Python 3k. If we want to get rid of them, we should deprecate them, wait a release or so, *then* remove them.
It seems to me if we want to remove this at some point, the time is now. I'm not aware of anything starting off deprecated in 3k - my impression is the whole point of 3k is to clean house.
Deprecation warnings can be put into 2.6 if people think thats necessary, but the more important thing will be including it in 2to3. I'm working on that right now, so if/when the actual wording is finalized, it should just be a matter of changing around the order of the function names in a dict.
