Comment (by boonebgorges):

 I think this is the wrong approach. Replacing existing functions with
 stubs will prevent sites from experiencing fatal errors on upgrade, but it
 will also break existing functionality. I'm all for deprecating the
 functions - in the sense that we move them to the deprecated files (so a
 site admin can prevent them from being loaded) and put
 _deprecated_function() notices into them. But there's no reason why we
 can't also leave the functions intact. (Side note: to gut the functions is
 not deprecation at all - it's removal. So in that case it's misleading to
 put the functions in the deprecated files.)

 I have a feeling that DJPaul and I are not going to come to agreement on
 this point, so I think this is a place where jjj is probably going to have
 to step in and make an executive decision.
