Even if it were to be deprecated, that could only happen in 2.7, the  
module would still be there in 2.8, and could only disappear in 2.9 (or  
3.4) (see PEP 4: Deprecation of Standard Modules). And even after it's  
gone, being a pure Python module it's easy to keep the previous version  
So, I wouldn't worry about that.
