There are three types of widgets in the gtk+ world: (1) active and
non-deprecated, (2) deprecated, and (3) deprecated and removed.
Application writers know that (2) is on the way to (3), even if gtk+
developers like to publicly say that isn't true. It's just that we have
never observed anything else.
So, no. I don't want the API stability in (3). And the "bug fixes" part
for (2) is by and large PR. In the real world, it doesn't happen and
I am regularly reminded of this when 10 year old bug reports get
closed wontfix or obsolete.
Emmanuele, why are you so cavalier about inflicting pain and work
on application writers?
