Yeah I must have misremembered something here. I also didn't want to
suggest that this would violate the ABI compatibility (as you state they
were private symbols and therefore not covered by the ABI guarantee). I
just misremembered the reasoning why they were added and then removed
(guess I just remember some discussion related to the clean up of
symbols prior to the 1.7 or 1.8 release which is completely independent
from these symbols).
