but i think as a rewrite version, such methods can be
removed, or replaced with new methods and properties, to make
new code cleaner.
also, for convinence, we can provide some simple wrapper
classes, which map old methods to new ones.
and put them in some package such as pywikibot.wrappers.*.
for example, pywikibot.wrappers.Page.
try to make them have the same interfaces as old version
and this may make porting old scripts easier (just by writing
from pywikibot import wrappers as wikipedia etc.).
Sorry for not responding sooner. As I said in the message I posted a few
minutes ago in the thread about Twisted, this sounds like a great idea if
you'd like to do the work yourself, but you shouldn't expect much assistance
from other users. We just don't have enough people in the group to take on
new tasks, even ones that make a lot of sense, like this one.
