Post an enhancement request on bugzilla... Note that this is an API
change, and if accepted would be in GLib 2.4.0 at the earliest.

Nah, doesn't seem right to use #defines at the application level to
mysteriously affect inner workings in GLib on one platform.

An environment variable? G_WIN32_NEVER_ALLOC_CONSOLE or something?
That could be implemented already in GLib 2.2.2. (Or are environment
variables like that just a nasty way to achieve API functionality
change without actual source code API changes, and should be frowned
upon? Owen?)
