sorry to just do it, but it really had to be done, so that it would make
the unstable rel tonight. the decision was made long ago to use the ->
syntax everywhere. since we have done so and it doesn't really make
sense to have two exceptions. the functions filename_to_unicode and
filename_from_unicode have now been implemented to allow being called
with :: or ->. and the doc in Glib.pm updated to reflect the -> usage.
whether or not it's right, it was the policy made back when we first
started gtk2-perl (at which point i at least didn't understand the
reasons) and it's pretty much to late to change the policy now with out
breaking existing code.
