This is incorrect; thing-at-point-bounds-of-list-at-point is a helper
function that is called by `bounds-of-thing-at-point'.  If removed,
(bounds-of-thing-at-point 'list) no longer works.

I've marked thing-at-point-bounds-of-list-at-point explicitly as an
internal function, and will close this bug.
