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.
