I personally prefer to have a phased deprecation including a period of
increasingly more annoying impediments.  Here are some examples that
I've seen work:

* warning messages with feedback url
* enforced periods of delay prior to executing commands
* eventual removal of deprecated code and substitution with hook to
replacement implementation
