Wait a minute: "Not used a lot"(!)  App developers are in limbo
here.  Not so long ago we were told that if our apps compiled OK
with all the appropriate DISABLE_DEPRECATED flags with the latest
stable versions of the libraries (GTK and friends) we'd be fine
for GTK+ 3.

Then Benjamin came along with phase 1 of his GDK cleanup and that
seemed sensible, though not without problems for app developers.
I've now "cleaned up" my app so that it does not use GdkGC if GTK
is new enough. But my replacement code for GdkGC uses GdkPixmap --
and now we can't have that either?!

I think you guys need to call a halt somewhere on what you're
going to trash for GTK+ 3 if you want to have any apps that will
run on it.
