The GtkRecentFilterInfo structure is similar to GtkFileFilterInfo, which
is not a boxed type either.  Do you want both to become boxed types?
It's a real question - not a rhetorical one: making GtkRecentFilterInfo
a boxed type makes a compelling motive for GtkFileFilterInfo to become a
boxed type too[1]; we would be braking ABI, though.  On the other hand,
the same code bindings are using to convert a GtkFileFilterInfo to
whatever native type they are using could be easily replicated for


[1] For the Perl bindings, the GtkFileFilterInfo is automagically
converted to an HASH object, but the conversion code is not
auto-generated, so it might make sense to use a boxed type.
