Er, is nobody supposed to allocate GErrors statically? That's the first I'd
heard of it...

In code using dbus-glib to implement async methods, it's very convenient to
do things like this:

if (!check_permission(...))
        "no you can't have a pony" };

    dbus_g_method_return_error (context, &e);

to avoid a pointless allocate/free when using functions like
dbus_g_method_return_error (or g_error_copy), which take a const error...
is this forbidden, and if so, by what?
