Since we currently pretty much rely on namefinder such a wrapper could 
possibly solve the issue :-)

Well, I just browsed through the announce list and to be honest I think the 
deprecation of a public API really should have been announced there a year ago 
if it was already obvious that it would get discontinued.
Personally I'd say it should be good practice to announce the deprecation half 
a year before shutdown of the service on osm-announce.
