I will go poke some more people/groups who might care.  Like:  I'll go

I don't expect any substantial objections, though, and think we'll end up doing
this.  That means:

  * add the "use deprecate" to Module::Build
  * ship it[1]
  * mark it deprecated in CoreList
  * set a timer for 5.21.0

[1]: If we only add the usage to core's M::B, it means we'll
either need to stop updating core's version or we'll need to reapply each time.
I think it'll be easier to add it to the official repo, and I know a few people
with the commit bits to make it happen. ;)
