actually it should be +10 ;-)

Many average users don't even know about the deprecation log being 
active by default.
After a while they run into problems due to the logfile being too big 
for the available disk space of their shared hosting environment.

One example: I've seen huge deprecation logs even with a native 
introduction package due to some of the extension using a deprecated way 
to provide their icons.
