This  functionality was  deprecated  but not  removed  yet. This  commit
removed it completely but as these functions were previously part of the
public  API, the  SONAME was  bumped, which  IMHO makes  sense to  avoid
breaking existing program  or libraries using this  feature for whatever
reason.  Perhaps, there  would have been a smoother way  to do that (any
advice is greatly appreciated BTW), sorry about that.
