[spambayes-dev] Deprecated options

Hi everyone,

Given that CVS HEAD is now working towards 1.1 and we have the safe 1.0
release branch, would anyone mind if I ripped out all the options &
associated code (three options, two code) that are marked as deprecated?
The users have had plenty of warning, and it seems unlikely that anyone is
using them anyway.

The relevant options are:

[Classifier] x-experimental_ham_spam_imbalance_adjustment - the code for
this is gone already; it's just the option that's left.
[Tokenizer] x-extract_dow
[Tokenizer] x-generate_time_buckets

I'm interested in up/de-grading some of the experimental options, too.  I'd
vote for:

[Classifier] x-use_bigrams - becomes a regular option (defaulting to False?)
[Tokenizer] x-fancy_url_recognition - becomes a regular option (defaulting
to True?)
[Tokenizer] x-pick_apart_urls - no opinion, here.
[Tokenizer] x-reduce_habeas_headers & [Tokenizer]
x-search_for_habeas_headers - removed.  The habeas headers aren't used much,
and are ofttimes spoofed, so these end up not being much use.
[URLRetreiver] *.  Not sure as of yet.
