I think they can go. It's probably a pre-1.0 deprecation that somehow
was never followed through on.
BTW in this context, to avoid (or diminish ...) the same from
happening with currently begun deprecations, what setting up a page
on the bioperl site that lists deprecations currently in progress and
their schedule (e.g., deprecated in rel. >1.5.2, warning in rel.
>1.6.x, removed in rel. >1.7.x).
Or does this exist already?
