What is the best practice for deprecating a class in Twisted and writing
tests for it ... and updating existing tests.

I think that the part in which the deprecation code is written, is well
understood and documented here


What is missing, is the part talking about how to test these changes and
how to update existing tests.

The compatibility / deprecation documentation include a section about how
to test deprecation code, but the section is brief.
