Should I just stop using gtk+ for

you can still use deprecated classes until we break GTK for 4.0.
deprecation does not mean removal, it just means that the deprecated
API should not ("should not", not "must not") be used in newly written

To be fair, it may not mean "immediate removal" but it does mean "slated for removal", which to a developer effectively means "you need to re-write all your code using it (sooner or later)", which is I think pretty much what Jean was griping about.
