Thanks for your words Ernesto. I brought up int_from_ver because of its 
chicken-egg problem.

An example of a working solution can be found in ext:news [1], and even 
Georg needed two or three iterations to get it done with all versions. 
BTW: Georgs utility class is very useful and I've already copied it to 
several own projects.

Just re-adding this method (in 6.2, 6.1 with deprecation) to 
GeneralUtility will solve this specific chicken-egg issue and lowers the 
upgrade barrier for extensions at an important place. And it should be 
killed after 6.2 again.

In general, I'm all for cleaning up and keeping the deprecation path we 
have set up. I don't want to re-introduce all the stuff we worked so 
hard to replace it with better API.

My 2 cents
