It's a bug in `functions.inc`: At the start it claims that it needs only 
v3.5, but later it uses the `deprecated` keyword, which wasn't 
introduced until v3.7.

In other words, if someone were to use genuine POV-Ray v3.5, and render 
the scene with that very same include file, they'd get an error message.

The fact that POV-Ray warns about such scenarios is a brand new feature 
of v3.8.0-beta.1.
