The GtkEditable change make the use of the entries consistent.  In any case,
you can still use the old way of getting the inner GtkEntry (which I think is
more on crack).  We can't do a better API then this I don't think without
completely breaking it.  This is at least trying to preserve as much source
compatiblity as possible, while making things work and lowering the general
crack level of these widgets.
