Good to hear.  This project should help that process by moving
functionality out of unsupportable libraries into GTK+, as well as
getting the code supported.

As far as I know, we didn't deprecate any symbols in GTK+-2.8.  It's
early yet for GTK+-2.10, but the only widget I know of in GTK+ that has
functionality targeted by Ridley is GtkHandleBox.  I think the
deprecated list in 2.6 should be sufficient.
