Giampaolo Rodola' added the comment:

Signaling the deprecation or just the existence of asynchat.fifo really isn't worth the effort because the code is no longer used since fifo was replaced with a deque in python 2.6.
Basically it's dead code and the only reason it remained there is because there were some complaints about a compatibility breakage when the 2.6 patch was applied, but I remember fifo class had nothing to do with it.
FWIW I added a deprecation warning and scheduled asynchat.fifo for removal in python 3.6 but IMO it is not worth it to mention it in the doc.

resolution:  -> fixed
