In general, I'm __preserving__ routines that should be deprecated,
adding what I believe to be better replacements, and reworking the
deprecated ones in terms of the non-deprecated.  Paged results is an
exception, because they are just being added and there appears to be
already a commonly accepted API.  Feel free to axe it instead of placing
into LDAP_DEPRECATED.  In any case, I feel those changes won't be
released before 2.4, so chances are things will get reworked again.
