What I mean is that when *new* interfaces are added,
only the version taking GEOSContextHandler would be provided.

And (I meant) all other ones not taking that handler would
be marked with "deprecated" attribute so warnings come
out at build time (only for GCC I know how..).

Can still wait for the second part (deprecation), but I
think it makes sense for the first part (stop *adding*
the bare ones).
