support for those features has already been developed and it is going
to be added to GAction before we release GLib 2.38 and GTK 3.10, and
improved in the future so that it matches with the overall spirit and
design of the API. if you want to influence where the API is going,
you can start looking at how to port your code, what you think it's

you should *really* read the document linked in Jon's email; it
answers the questions about when and where icons should be used inside
menus. it's not a blanket removal (and it's not something done to
"emulate OSX"; please, refrain from making snap judgements in the

I read the document before posting, and it did mention that icons are
