Re: Why keysym constants in gdk/gdkkeysyms.h are defined as macros, not as an enum?

Well, using enums would make wrapping keysyms much easier on the gtkmm side.

It will also help other bindings to stop doing things such as this:

Why is this needed? The GDK_KEY_x constants are introspected properly and are available as Gdk.KEY_x.

Changing the defines to enums would change the representation that gobject-introspection produces and would thus constitute a break of the IABI, as Colin called it -- the introspection ABI. The positive effects of such a change should therefore be significant enough to outweigh this downside.
