[New-bugs-announce] [issue2814] Remove old classes from mailbox module

New submission from Humberto Diogenes <humberto at digi.com.br>:

mailbox.py has one section marked as "classes from the original 
module (for backward compatibility)", which are all listed as deprecated 
in the module documentation.

In issue 756982, A. M. Kuchling agreed that "removing those old classes in 
3.0 would be very sensible." I've attached a patch to do that, removing 
the only test that broke (test_unix_mbox).
