I didn't (and don't) advocate such a deprecation, FWIW, in that
message.  I simply do not think it is worth the cost.

I however think it may be worth making sure that our docs do not
encourage "diff A..B" and teach "diff A B" when comparing two
endpoints.  That can be done without changing anything in the code.
