AFAIR, the java-gnome bindings used the GDK threading markers to
replace the mutex used internally by GDK with a recursive one, that
suited the java programming model.

also, Libre/OpenOffice chained up their Big Fat Lock™ to GDK's one.

I guess we'll have to maintain the gdk_threads_set_lock_functions(),
and internally use gdk_threads_enter()/_leave(), even if the API is
not available in public headers.
