Go for a pragmatic approach? Look for those headers, say in github and
stackoverflow. If you see many repositories where code includes the
header, and many stackoverflow questions about them, try and avoid
breaking them. If you don't see any, there may still be users somewhere,
but they are likely quite few and you don't need to care as much.
