Hmm, yeah forgot it then too, just should had applied it straight then :D

I'd really like to just drop it now, it's quite internal and, while
public, the use of it should not be necessary by any API user, IMO.

But, this depends on how strict we see the API interface stability,
I think that sometimes, case-by-case controlled, it could be ignored
(with a mentioning in the changelog, naturally), as keeping this
parameter does not really hurts us, it probably isn't such a case, though.
