That's an extremely ugly fallback solution, specially for a feature
that no one will use.

The problem here is that GObject cannot be copied generically, when
they are, it's a custom feature. Note that reference based locking
isn't always great. If I was to redo that, I'm opt for explicit locking
instead. In GStreamer we have hit many of the limitation of this model.
This can of course be introduced with an GInterface if you drop this cr
azy idea of using ref-count to figure-out writability.
