Deprecation generally means the feature will not be removed until the
old versions are well and truely gone.  When the feature is about to be
removed, you are sure to hear about it here, or by reading an
announcement in etc/NEWS.  At that time, you will probably want to clean
out the cruft to support long since unused versions of Emacs from your code.
