It's not a plugin interface and has never been stable. We've had a
long-running goal of removing all of these plug points where we don't
actually expect people to write stable plugins.

If you want to write against an unstable internal-only API and chase
every little change we make to it, then just patch the code locally.
Using these plug points is effectively the same thing.
