What I planned to do was to keep those as-is for the release of today,
and remove them (with an update of that API using
geanylua/util/mkiface.lua) straight after the 1.22 release.

Of course, it don't resolve the break with GeanyLua 1.22/Geany 1.23.  If
this is an issue (and it can be), I see 2 solutions:

1) remove these 2 calls right now;
2) make GeanyLua 1.22 depend on Geany <= 1.22

What do you think?  I think it can still be done before the release if


BTW, on PR54 I discussed this a little (with myself mostly):
