Done (Bug 79453).

Thanks.  I was thinking along the line too.  Then I read in

 * For most purposes this function is deprecated in favor of
 * g_object_set_data(). However, for historical reasons GTK+ stores
 * the #GtkWidget that owns a #GdkWindow as user data on the
 * #GdkWindow. So, custom widget implementations should use
 * this function for that. If GTK+ receives an event for a #GdkWindow,
 * and the user data for the window is non-%NULL, GTK+ will assume the
 * user data is a #GtkWidget, and forward the event to that widget.

This makes me wondering: Is the feature just 'historical'?  Will it
be true in the future?  But it should be ok for now.
