glib-extra.h G_DEFINE_DATA_TYPE issue


Since some time, I get lots of warnings when compiling beast from CVS
HEAD, which look like this:

When analyzing the problem, I've found that glib-extra.h ships with the
G_DEFINE_DATA_TYPE macro, which meanwhile has been backfolded into glib
(for instance 2.10.2 ships it) as G_DEFINE_TYPE. So compiling beast with
newer glib versions produces lots of warnings, because
G_IMPLEMENT_INTERFACE will be defined by both, gtype.h and glib-extra.h.

Now, there is code to disable definition of all these macros in
glib-extra.h, which reads:

#ifndef G_DEFINE_DATA_TYPE      // GTKFIX: add this to glib

However, this doesn't have any effect, since G_DEFINE_DATA_TYPE is not
defined by newer gtype.h versions (only G_DEFINE_TYPE).

So I was wondering whether it would help if I provided a patch which
renames all uses of G_DEFINE_DATA_TYPE (and related macros) in beast to
G_DEFINE_TYPE, so that the new version from gtype.h can be used when
