Not sure what you mean.  If you mean public export of libspi's
BonoboObject implementation code, I agree that these interfaces should
be private to the at-spi package.  However libspi is primarily intended
as implementation code for the at-spi IDL, which is the key public API
for at-spi.  The cspi library, though important to current clients, is
just a convenience wrapper.

However there may be reason to keep the libspi listener implementation
code available for C or C++ clients that don't want to use cspi.

I am not sure what you mean by "deprecation" of libspi really; as you
say we aren't really recommending direct use of libspi's methods (with
the possible exception of the listener code) by clients.  However I
don't know how we can enforce a "at-spi internals only" policy for
access to the library's symbols.
