Ticket #4994 (closed task: fixed)
Deprecate Control.Exception.blocked in favour of getMaskingState

|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
I proposed deprecating Control.Exception.blocked in favour of getMaskingState.
The term "blocked" refers to the old way of dealing with asynchronous exceptions (block/unblock). It can also be a bit confusing to which "blocked" property it refers: blocked asynchronous exceptions, or a blocked thread.
Note that blocked is already listed in the section (deprecated) Asynchronous exception control
There were no objections and one +1 from Simon Marlow.
The patch is attached.
