Description

Since #11398, We have Module#deprecate_constant available. But I wonder, why we don't have a way to deprecate methods? There is already Gem::Deprecate 1, so may be this could be extracted and made more generic?

This might be useful on several places in Ruby code:

$ find . -name \*.rb -type f -exec grep -r '[^_]warn.*deprecate' {} \; | wc -l
66

At the developers' meeting, no one was against this feature. It would be great if we can print a warning per a pair of callsite and callee (to suppress duplicated redundant warnings), but the implementation is not trivial (exploiting method call cache)?
