Please do not include it. It is basically non-functional at this time,
and is included only to preserve ABI compat with apps that link to

These interfaces shouldn't be included in the LSB ... the #ifdef's
reflect a reduced level of stability and indicate that the interfaces
are not for application use: they are most of interest to someone
