- not registering boxed types / objects / enums with their respective C
  type names is a bug
- if we fix this now, the special casing code in the language bindings,
  which are nothing more than bug-workarounds) simply won't be triggered
- other code should not be effected by this (except for debugging output)
  as the macros (GTK_TYPE_TREE_ITER etc...) are not affected (this would
  be the case if we were talking enum type names here)

i think we should dare fixing this in stable.
