I vaguely recollect this being discussed before, but I can't find anything
about it in our docstring Standard, in our Q+A section, nor (easily) at the
Python site (generally, when in doubt, we default to Python docstring
standards); so, how 'bout it guys and gals: should deprecation be noted in
docstrings and if so, where and how?
