Maybe the right solution is for testing frameworks (unittest, nose, py.test) to force deprecation warnings on. Then developers will be told about deprecation issues when they run their tests.
This is already done. The environments that still hit issues these days are thus those afflicted with untested code, like system administrator's utility scripts, data analysis and applications without(!) automated regression tests.
I still think it was the right call to make, but it was not without its negative consequences :(
