I remember that "noisy by default" deprecation warnings were widely despised.
One thought, what if they were off by default UNLESS you were doing unit tests?
I believe pytest already does this.
Indeed it does, at least in recent versions (1-2 yrs ago?)
And even that is pretty darn annoying. It's really helpful for my code, but they often get lost in the noise of all the ones I get from upstream packages.
I suppose I need to take the time to figure out how to silence the ones I don't want.
And it does prompt me to make sure that the upstream packages are working on it.
Now we just need to get more people to use pytest :-)
