I think any moderately experienced developer could tackle this (e.g.
someone who has implemented his own widget at some point).
A closing word on the library name, since this'd be an ABI break,
such a library only makes sense for Gtk+-3.0 (or 2.99.0) and should
probably advertise that it ships deprecated Gtk+ stuff. So the best
name is probably libgtk3deprecated for this (there could possibly
be a libgtk4deprecated as well at some point).
Seconded. And there's a precedent, too -- Gtk2::Deprecated for gtk2-
perl, which contains the widgets that were already deprecated as of gtk
The maintenance effort here has been effectively nil -- maybe six or
eight hours over four years. A fair portion of that has been
answering help request emails with "this stuff is old and busted, port
to the new hotness."
