Also, a few words to the effect of *why* it should be deprecated would be
useful. We use it quite a lot, and I'd appreciate a few comments.

It wouldn't be a big problem should it go away, since we already
monkeypatch t.p.logging a lot, but it is still bewildering to see such
comments without any explanation.

How much of what we are should we be proud of? When did we choose the
things that made us smart, knowledgeable, or successful? Should we be
proud? Should we feel superior? Maybe we should just be grateful.
