This is rather old, but it never came up again after this so I'd like to
see what thoughts are about how to implement this in C. It was in 2.13

public record of the disagreement in gtk-devel-list. Can anyone comment
on what was not liked, or how a better implementation could be made?
It should be noted that this one was a major showstopper for me to build
AbiWord with GSEAL enabled. And the more we wait to have this implement,
the more it will be a problem.
Currently some "basic" accessor (gtk_widget_get_window() for example)
are only in Gtk 2.14. This is already a big issue to write code that
work with GSEAL and still work with earlier version of Gtk. Gtk 2.14 is
still not that common even more on "Enterprise" distributions.
I know there are some hack that can be done (been there, done that), but
still. And today everything that touch "flags" or "allocation" is a no go.
