The $fakeit switch in get_the_excerpt() is unused.

the_excerpt() lacks such a switch. Whether or not this was ever used, I think it'd be good functionality. Often times people want the ability to only show an excerpt if they've manually provided one.

Start your voting. Should I implement the feature or mark it as deprecated?

I say deprecate, because you can do this now by removing the wp_trim_excerpt callback for the default 'get_the_excerpt' filter.
