When was GtkTooltips::tips_data_list deprecated, if it was every public

reppeating what i wrote above, GtkTooltips will be deprecated in 2.12
in favour of GtkTooltip.

So, this is deprecation with a break. Breaking normally follows
deprecation after a delay. Deprecation with a break is just a break.

every change is a "break" in some sense. the question is whether the
change actually affect applications badly or not (not what name is given
to it). so far, no case has been made for tips_data_list=NULL badly
affecting applications or LBs, i'm still waiting.
