They are removed from trunk since Sept 2016, and I think they were
deprecated for a while now, although I cannot confirm this. But what's
sure, they were only implemented and used interally for Unix. Affected


The commit messages should explain the whys, I think.

Although the code still has some leftovers here and there, and what's
sure, they weren't deprecated with a warning period :(, although I'm not
sure they were ever intended for public use... The documentation knows
about them at least, and they were public since 2014, but I think even
back then this was debated.
