These seem fine with me, because I think they have no current users.

We've had enough versions with the test-box recovery tool that if
someone really needs it, they can run an older version to get to the
new version.

I'm skeptical that this one should be removed,. At a minimum, though,
it could be better explained/discouraged in the docs for the hack that
it is.

I don't think these should be removed or deprecated, ever. I have lots
of code that still refers to them --- I doubt that I'm alone --- and I
think we should be able to support them.
