SWIG is driven by the header, i.e. zxid.h. Since those functions clearly
are not (currently) used, it is appropriate to deprecate them by
deleting them from zxid.h (done for 0.54). This will prevent SWIG
from generating any wrapper code. Other alternative would be to
condition the header with SWIG specific ifdefs.

Thanks for reporting this.
