This patch doesn't make changes to the API except the addition of a global
variable and a helper function ...

... maybe we should use a GTK_MOUSE_ACTION_MODMASK() macro which would
resolve to a hard coded value unless we have this global options stuff
done, then it would resolve to a function call(*) (or the variable itself,
if existent).

Just a thought.


(*): This would make it easy for programmers to use global options, to use
them they just have to recompile, when compiled with a "non-option-aware"
version of gtk, the options would be hardcoded.
