More and more users are going to use them anyway since they are
"absolutely necessary" and "there's no other way of doing it". We will
break things a second time when we remove them for good, and then there
will be more users to whine^Whave a frustrating experience because of
this. Less users will come to us with feature requests for proper APIs
for what is actually needed.

But as you wish. So what's your plan? Putting back the whole vlc.misc
unchanged? Splitting it in half? You'll have to rename stuff in an
incompatible way, won't you?
