Deprecate is_valid_version() and remove all usage.
Review Request #12645 — Created Sept. 25, 2022 and submitted
is_valid_version()is one of our older methods, intended to compare
tuples of integers together. This was from a type before we understood
Python well enough to know we could just compare tuples directly.
This change deprecates
is_valid_version()in favor of just comparing
tuples, and updates all code to do so.
All unit tests pass.
