Deprecated in this case means pointless since checking the limits shows
that there aren't any.  Usually the connotation is "discouraged"  as in
they'd rather you not use it but its still there for whatever reason.  (as
dar points out, some older scripts might check it and they might break if
it were removed)
I guess its possible that all the scriptlimits code that keeps you from
doing more than intended WAS cleaned up and removed, and all thats left is
a function that always returns 0,0,0,0.
