However it is not always feasible to do this. E.g. the module in
question, gnome-terminal, still keeps the original glade files since at
least at the time of its gtkbuilder conversion glade-3 was unable to
work with the converted .ui files. And it's not much use to use
gtbuilder files natively if one can't edit them afterwards!
Is there any special reason that gtk-builder-convert is unsuitable as a
build-time tool? If it has bugs, they should simply be fixed.
