Hold off, just like distutils2 etc. :) I finished the deprecation patch too late and so #10627 was created literally hours (if not minutes) before the freeze. Sorry for that.

On a related note, if you're sure logging users don't use any interpolation, you can also use SafeConfigParser(interpolation=None) so then all values become raw by default (e.g. people can use Python string formatting directives, % signs etc.). We can discuss this later on  when the time comes for that.
