I agree, though I'm not sure how to go about fixing it. I believe the
documentation is autogenerated from the source (extracting from marked-up
comments), and the deprecation info is from a simple #ifndef
GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED. So I don't think there's an easy way to add this to
the place in the docs (which is a shame).
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please!
