No need to get all bent out of shape. My proposal is to simply add a note
to the docs recommending against using this. I wouldn't change any code,
not even a silent deprecation warning. (Also, read the rest of the thread
to learn why this is not the best practice for writing Python 2/3
straddling code.)
