I don't really see the necessity of breaking the current xml format, or
not supporting the older widgets.

I wouldn't mind if it supported alternatives to some of the
special-cased stuff we have in the current xml, if they were obviously
much better. But tweaking it slightly will just cause unnecessary
hassle. (The switch to the glade-2 format was a pain in the neck.)
