[Python-Dev] Handling deprecations in the face of PEP 384

As I clean up Python/import.c and move much of its functionality into
Lib/imp.py, I am about to run into some stuff that was not kept private to
the file. Specifically, I have PyImport_GetMagicTag() and NullImporter_Type
which I would like to chop out and move to Lib/imp.py.

>From my reading of PEP 384 that means I would need to at least deprecate
PyImport_getMagicTag(), correct (assuming I follow through with this; I
might not bother)? What about NullImporter_Type (it lacks a Py prefix so I
am not sure if this is considered public or not)?
