They were not deprecated in the sense of having at one time been
defined in the member data in the OldStyleMemberships.py list object.
They have never been attributes of the list object other than as bits
in user_options.

These fields also exist (unreferenced) in the table in Kev Green's
MysqlMembersips.py <https://bugs.launchpad.net/mailman/+bug/558093>,
upon which Fil's is based, so my guess is Kev intended to use them at
some point but never got to it.
