This was done on purpose, in order to have one revision containing the
deprecation message before actually removing the code.
That way, someone can possibly get the files with the deprecation tags
and copy them over to the 2.x branch.

Revert what?

I'll copy the files as suggested above, but the information in there will be
inconsistent (e.g. the replacement classes are *not* in the branch). Luc
already said that it was a nightmare to keep the branches in sync. [I do not
have time for that. I mean: I do not have time for that.]
Luc also indicated that 2.2 will/should be considered as a maintenance
release: Users will be able to stick with 2.2 or upgrade to 3.0, but will
not be able able to make all their code compatible with 3.0 while running on
