Please revert, ASAP. This breaks the ABI of GTK+ for
some versions of g++, and the API of GTK+ for C. 

The question is not how the API _should_ be, but what
it can be while maintaining compatibility.

See README.cvs-commmits for GTK+:

0) Ask first. If your changes are major, or could possibly break existing
   code, you should always ask. If your change is minor and you've
   been working on GTK+ for a while it probably isn't necessary
   to ask. But when in doubt, ask. Even if your change is correct,
   somebody may know a better way to do things.


This is double, triply, important when you think about changing
a header file.
