Absolutely true in general. Based on available data, I just don't think staged deprecation is the best approach for dealing with union wait.

Another oddity: Portable software already has a check for the availability of union wait. A deprecated union wait type will still pass the configure test, and cause deprecation warnings (possibly treated as errors) later in the build. Direct removal does not.
