One convention that I like is to use a _sync suffix for sync APIs,
instead of an _async suffix for async ones, because it lets me spot
synchronous calls with grep.

A little sad that there are things like g_file_read that are sync, not

We already have g_file_read_async, it was probably typo, however I wonder which methods doesn't have async 
versions? Would be probably good start to implemented them if there are any.
