i wasn't aware that the drawing switch was planned for 2.22. this now
makes this branch barely 2.X at all, from our perspective. it
fundamentally makes it a completely new implementation of GDK, within
a supposedly stable branch of GTK. this is quite problematic, i think.
i was under the impression that 2.22 was going to be the last release
of 2.X, not a preview of what 3.0 would contain.
