well, for 1.0 (april 1998), we definitely had a GtkObject already
and therefore gtk_object_destroy().
however, tracking this down, just for the fun of it, GtkObject was
introduced with the first version of Gtk+ (i.e. Gtk + signals + types),
thrown out 1997-01-28. indeed the last version before that, plain Gtk
shipped with gimp-0.60 in july 1996 just had gtkwidget.[hc] with
gtk_widget_destroy, and no gtkobject.[hc].
so there's a long tradition of not deprecating gtk_widget_destroy()
eventhough we could have, the reason being that it was used much in
