Is this because it's easier for the other languages?
It is my impression that Python is essentially a dictatorship, so
deciding what in the standard to deprecate is simple. Furthermore, I
think there is a single implementation, so the act of deprecation is
simple to pull off.
Is Java a similar case at least with respect to the relevant bytecode
and language definition standards?
