Yeah, it's in quite good shape but there are some TODOs in the code, and
the issue of maybe doing an internal refcount of the Path object, as per
Owen Taylor's suggestion.

Yes. Also related: Bug 6895 [1] and RefPtr memory leaks [2]

Yeah, there's quite a few functions here and there. gmmproc reports them
during the build.

That's good, but I keep thinking that having a more prominent list of
things to do might encourage more people to pitch in...

We need to figure out how to do UIManager recent-files sub-menu
integration for an example. Apparently it's possible.

I could look into this, but could you explain a bit more what you mean
by this?  Is there an existing GTK+ example that we could build on or
is it something we need to start from scratch?

I suppose both of these things (printing and recent files) need to be
added to the tutorial as well.  I'll also try to start on that.
