Question about official API

What is the rule for knowing if something is part of the official API?
I have a queue.Queue(), I want to call q.join(), but I do not want it to
Looking at dir(q), I find an attribute 'unfinished_tasks'. It is an integer,
and it looks like the counter referred to in the documentation for
'task_done()'. I tried it out, and it does exactly what I want.
However, it is not mentioned in the documentation.
How do I know if it is safe to rely on this?
