Well, I'm not "strongly" against them, just trying to understand whether
there's a plausible argument that someone is calling these functions from
extensions.  I'm not hearing one ... for one thing, I don't believe there
are any extensions playing games with transaction/lock semantics.  (My
Salesforce colleagues have done some of that, and no you can't get far
without changing the core code.)
