Note that this is a private method. Plugins should avoid using private
methods. Unfortunately during the decomposition efforts not enough effort was
expended on scrubbing private methods from the plugins. This should be
something that plugin maintainers continue to work on and keep an eye out for.

We will continue to use deprecation warnings for changes to non-private
methods affecting plugins.
