They hurt in that libgnomeui doesn't build with -D*_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
-Wall -Werror.

"OK, so don't use -Werror".  But then we have the situation where apps
will not build due to a chain of GTK+ deprecations that were not
propagated to libgnomeui that were not propagated to etcetera.  E.g.
gnome-app-helper.h wants GtkCallbackMarshal, which is gone with

So either we build all libraries with no deprecation flags at all or we
chain them properly, I think.
