Ug.  It would be better if we didn't deprecate so many functions.  I  
think it's directly proportional to our QA process.  Investigating  
for Dojo Core (aka Dojo-lite) the number of fluffy functions is far  
too high.  Part of the reason there's bloat is because we have no  
discipline when making APIs.  Once a function has been added the cost  
of removal is very high, especially if it pushes through a release.

If the APIs have changed significantly then I think it's an indicator  
that it's time to push and shake the tree.
