Hmm.. I don't think it requires a major version change as they are not
public APIs actually. They are internal functions but can be overridden
by external ones, right?

I guess it's because there was a concern with printing messages in
a library. What about adding a mechanism to register callbacks
(and maybe defaults to discard all messages)?
