I suggested that we resolve this by restoring the long standing private APIs

What a sensible approach. May I suggest dropping in a comment saying
"these were used by 3rd party tools and need to be left public until
further notice" ?

It's not "until further notice" but "until 2.0"; they were in a public header, therefore, they are public. Sad but true.
