Long history sort: Python 2.7 backported Capsule support and
(incorrectly, in my opinion) marked CObject as deprecated.
All C modules in the stdlib were updated to Capsule (with a CObject
compatibility layer), except BSDDB, because this change was done late in
the cycle, the proposed patch was buggy (solvable) and a pronouncement
was done that CObject was not actually deprecated.
But in python 2.7 release, CObject is marked as deprecated (arg!), so
when executing python with -We (mark warnings as errors), bsddb fails.
Since I think that adopting Capsule in BSDDB for 2.7.1 would break the
API compatibility (maybe the CObject proxy would solve this), and since
a previous pronouncement was done abour CObject not-deprecated in 2.7.x,
I would like comments.
Long history and links to previous pronouncements in
My proposal: CObject should not be marked as deprecated in 2.7.1.
Thanks for your time and attention.
