+1, but like i said in my previous post, i don't even think it'll be  
necessary to deprecate many or any for that matter of those.  at  
least, it wasn't my original idea to take it too that point.  i'd  
rather start and clean some things up once in a while than insisting  
to do everything at once (including those tricky parts) and  
potentially settle down again afterwards.  to me this is more like an  
ongoing effort, and i guess i wanted to know what others think about  
it and what would be good and maybe not so good points in time to do it.

having that said, i'd also be very much in favour of having something  
like "spring cleanups" or a sprint dedicated to simplifying and  
cleaning up code, or perhaps even a release.  and of course, i'd very  
much like to hear your thoughts on that... :)
