I now made this change in the local 3.19 code (3.18 is uploaded already),
so next build the deprecated functions will be back in the headers.

Thanks for this information, that's indeed what I was waiting for. For
example Python should be aware that the functions sqlite3_global_recover(),
sqlite3_thread_cleanup() and sqlite3_memory_alarm() in sqlite are
dummy functions doing nothing, any code using them is simply obsolete.

I'll see what I can do about this, reporting this upstream would be the least.
