I've sent several mails to squeak-dev but I see no evidence that they
arrived (through looking at

I've not seen any commit mails there either, from the commits I issued today.

Is the list broken?

There are quite a few places in Kernel that reference Preferences

I'd like to turn this preference into a new-world pragma based
preference, and Deprecation (despite being an exception) seems like a
good place to hang the preference.

So instead of saying "Preferences showDeprecationWarnings" you'd say
"Deprecation showWarnings", and the preference would be called "Show
deprecation warnings".

Any strong objection?
