I don't know. The Doxy even acknowledges there's an alternative but
mentions its use case is apparently different, which is probably why
the deprecation wasn't made effective.

If the function really needs to go, then the deprecated attribute should
be added to the header. And from that point the ~2 years deprecation
period starts.
