It's not too late to change, the transition should be rather easy.

In terms of speed, I would say 0. There's a one method call (ie a
plain function call, most of the time) per GTK+ function call
overhead, which is not something you can measure in a GUI.
Regarding memory, I don't know. It depends on how many widgets you're
using, and how many different ones you're using...
Taking the 'entry' example, the Gtk-- version has a size of 4496 Kb
(2828 resident), while the GTK+ version is 3144 Kb, 1776 resident.
Taking the 'aspectframe' example, the Gtk-- version is 4456Kb (2648
RSS), the GTK+ is 3132Kb (1660 RSS).
