Speaking as the author of the doc pages, I think I can safely say that anyone who was smart enough to use asyncore/asychat back in the day (I used it in "Python Web Programming") is almost certainly smart enough to have migrated away from them long ago. They were an interesting approach to asynchronous networking, but I think it's safe to say that world has moved on in 20 years.

Kind regards,
Steve

I think it would be fine to wait just one release, until 3.12. Makes no substantial maintenance difference and maybe easier for users with more advanced notice, especially for module removal.

I also wonder if maybe we should scale delay between dep -> removal based on maintenance burden estimate, rather than 2 versions for all. Module removal certainly takes more effort to adjust in code vs simple function name change with 1:1 replacement.
