Better to deprecate it before it becomes broken, in my opinion.
Having someone willing and able to review and merge changes is the best criteria for whether a module is still supported or not.

FWIW, the pdb module depends on the cmd module.
Also, I still teach people how to use cmd and I think it still serves a useful purpose. So, unless it is considered broken, I don't think it should be deprecated.
