We should deprecate it for some time before removing it.  Traditionally 
we deprecate modules for at least one major release of GHC before they 
are removed.

Also, the existing code will still be required in order to provide the 
Haskell 98 Time library, which we don't intend to remove.  Perhaps the 
existing System.Time implementation can move to the haskell98 package later.
