I have to keep telling them because
a) Anjuta makes them think that this is what they should use, and what
everyone else is using.
b) glademm's name and website don't tell them that it's something
unusual, or that it's not part of the gnomemm project.

I don't think that "ability to change the user interface without
recompilation" is wanted by anyone.

libglademm is just simpler and it more closely wraps what is done in
GNOME with C - In C, people use libglade but only fools use glade C code
generation. It is not so bad with glade C++ code generation but it's
still an unusual technique that I don't believe is suitable for
