As well as a general learned avoidance of reckless C++ operator
overloading, I think you'd lose the advantages of actually using the
regular C++ hierarchy, such as type-safe casts at compile-time.

For gtkmm I am not greatly troubled by the new-interfaces-break-ABI
issue because it happens so rarely.
