We have a long history on this list of careful consideration of the
benefits and collateral damage of the new APIs we adopt, and in doing
so, make a certain commitment to maintain. This is what makes GTK+ a
safe place to contribute and a viable choice for application developers.
This said, I think Jasper has raised the right course of discussion,
