So there are two possibilities: g_assert when you want the application
to abort, and g_return_if_fail when you don't. g_assert can be disabled
compile-time for a release, right? In that case, it does nothing.

So why not add a compile option to make g_return_if_fail fatal, and
simply deprecate g_assert? What is the point of having it there?
