By strong references, do you mean that g_object_ref() has been called on the 
AtkObjects in the target? If so, the answer is no.

Currently there is an AtkRelationSet member in AtkObject but it is not currently 
used. We may remove this soon if we decide to construct the relation set when 
atk_object_get_relation_set() is called. My preference is that the caller of 
atk_object_get_relation_set() should call g_object_unref() when finished with 
the relation set. In that acsae should we rename atk_object_get_relation_set to 

I have reimplemented AtkRelation and AtkRelationSet as GObjects; tar ball 
containing diffs and new source files is attached. Comments welcome.
