Likewise - an additional proofreading pass would be useful, but the
overall content looks fine to me.

There were some discussions a while back of restoring a distinction
between the two by having code executed directly at the REPL (whether
at the command line or in IDLE) show DeprecationWarning by default,
but still hide PendingDeprecationWarning globally.

That idea actually seemed to garner general approval, so I suspect the
main reason the discussion died out was the fact that it's a bit
fiddly to implement.
