It's not even necessary. Gtk can access struct members directly if
desired (for performance reasons, or whatever), but the API should
expose them for subclasser use as well.
I doubt this was done "maliciously"; the hostility shown in this thread
seems a bit silly to me. I imagine some of these missing bits just got
lost in the shuffle in the effort to clean up the public interfaces.
It's not like the gtk maintainers are unreasonable; I bet a patch to
expose the needed functionality would be accepted.
