Warning when using private vars

Description

Currently no warning or error of any kind is given. Throwing an error and forcing users to go through vars is somewhat less attractive since vars dump information like file, line, etc. A warning would be a simple way to flag users that they are treading into dangerous territory. Downstream tooling error handling can make it a hard error if they like.
