Certainly, but what is the right way to deprecate code, then?  I'm not 
very happy about including zope.deprecation either, since it uses the 
sys.modules trick just like zope.deferredimport, but those deprecation 
warnings are important, aren't they?

It's still really big though.  Hmph.

Thanks for the new graphs!
