"Used by our own code" does not equate to "should be part of the
official API".

You'd better back off a little on what you're removing.  Or forget the
whole thing; I don't really agree that the above is a bug.  libpq has
always had rather more visible symbols than are in the official API,
and there are probably people using some of them.
