> Well, you can say apply() is 'deprecated' now,

What is deprecated is the spelling, not the concept or functionality.
As far as I know, apply(func, args) is exactly equivalent to func(*args).
If the latter had been invented in the beginning and you had learned it as 
Python's spelling of the apply concept, you might never miss the 'apply' 
spelling.
