well, as I said other times, the move to GTK+ objects to GLib seems
straightforward, so the solution here is to add checks to configure
about the GLib version being used, and add appropriate #ifdef's in the
code (mainly only to replace the gtk_object_* calls).

So, if you want to have a try at this, it will be wonderful.

The other thing remaining is the GNOME::GenericFactory interface, which
must be replace by the OAF's ObjectFactory. I'm working also on this, so
it will be done very soon.

And I think there are no more things to do.

I haven't done anything, so it would be great if you try to merge it
with the current docs (libgda/doc/C/libgda.sgml).
