[Python-Dev] DeprecationWarnings in the regression tests

FYI, there are no more warnings when running the test suite on Windows.

regrtest *usually* fails in test___all__ when run with -r ("random"),
though, due to rlcompleter.  It smells like another one of those deals where
an expected (on Windows) failing import leaves behind a damaged module
object in sys.modules, allowing the next import of it to succeed in another
test, but delivering a module object that doesn't have the attributes the
latter test is trying to use.  So *boom* -- an unexpected AttributeError,
and a legitimate error at the time it happens.
