I never really saw the case for two levels of deprecation
(i.e. `discouraged' and `deprecated').  I thought `deprecated' on its
own was enough.

When deprecation was first invented, the notional plan was that a
deprecated thing would be removed immediately before the _second_ major
release following when it became deprecated.
