Does it matter if the deprecation is in code? Our users don't read
code, which is painfully obvious.  The fact is that this was
deprecated in code for six months, but we didn't announce the change,
and very few people have updated their plugins.

I hope not, but if we do I don't care at that point.  We gave them
notice.  If they get upset about this change at that point, it's their
own fault.

Fair enough. I'm not known as the champion of the users, actually
quite to the contrary.  I'm the developer that all our Android users
despise because I close bugs that I feel are out of scope, or that we
just can't fix.  Therefore, when I say that we should probably fix
things, it's probably an actual real issue and doesn't come from any
warm fuzzy feeling I have for these people.
