Ouch. I actually did read up on the availability before I pushed that, but
clearly I misread as when I check the docs now it says it was added in 0.9.7.

To me, that even seems like a better choice functionality wise since the
functions are documented to return:

     ERR_peek_error() returns the earliest error code from the thread˘s
     error queue

     ERR_peek_last_error() returns the latest error code from the thread˘s
     error queue
