    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.

I can't really remove it from glade-2 at this point. But I could add
stuff to the docs to explain the pros & cons of each.

Code generation does have some good points at present though. It is good
for playing around with tiny apps, as you can build and run them almost
immediately. I just never got around to making it scalable.

glade-3 won't have a code generator built-in, but unfortunately I
don't think anyone is working on that at present.
