      I've just had to explain for the umpteenth time to people to use
libglade instead of code generation ... Surely if we're not recommending
that anyone use it, we should just remove it completely to avoid the
confusion ?

Makes sense to me; we had 

 Don't use glade to generate code, use libglade!

As the /topic in #gtk+ for a week or so, and there were a ton of people
coming in, seeing the topic and asking about it because they had
been struggling with glade's generated code.


(Note that there may be resistance from the people who have written
 code generation plugins for various languages, but I think the 
 same basic principle applies there. If you don't have excellent
 IDE integration, you don't want to generate code. Maybe not 
 even then.)
