Just to be clear, the toolkit update here is not*just*  a necessary evil.
It will also be totally awesome, even feature-wise!


Simply to get there, we have to pass through an "unstable" phase, that's
all there is to it.

Apparently GTK+3.22 is considered "long term stable" (that is, supported for
three years? starting from when?) and is the last minor release in the GTK+3

Just to clarify, the "unstable" phase happens because we're migrating
the toolkit, not because the toolkit we're migrating to is unstable...

Will the port from GTK+3 to GTK+4 be as difficult as the port from GTK+2 to
GTK+3? Looking at various NEWS postings in the 3.93/.92/etc releases leading
up to GTK+4 (, it looks like a
fair amount of stuff will change.

I guess we'll see. The major concern I have is related to our own ABI
compatibility. Is there a way to decouple our ABI version from the GTK
version? This is what forced us to stick with gtk2 for that long
timeframe, and that sucked...
