The problem here is that GObject cannot be copied generically, when

This can of course be introduced with an GInterface if you drop this cr
azy idea of using ref-count to figure-out writability.

There have been discussions about using negative reference counts for
non-atomic reference counts. Not sure the status of that though.

We still can't use that for Gtk, because applications regularly pass a
widget to another thread and queue a callback/unref from that thread.
