Or wait, I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I missed the fact that
$wgApiCacheHelpTimeout was already there.

Due to register_globals considerations we have to either keep the old var
around in DefaultSettings or stop listening for it. Neither sounds particularly
nice, so I think the best solution is to phase it out gradually (mark as
deprecated now, but still define it in DS and listen to it for a while longer,
then kill it in a later release).
