Let's keep that as a possibility, but I haven't seen a serious need for
it yet. But I could be persuaded by a list of API additions that we'd
like to make in 3.22 or 3.24. Otherwise it's just a hypothetical that
we don't need to worry about.

I'd need to ponder more to get a proper list, but some additions from recent memory are wrapping Window.show_uri(), which is relatively unimportant;

this new method in GtkFlowBox:

and this fix for odd gtkmm API, which is wordy to work around in user code:

There's also things that may yet be backported to GTK+ 3.22, due to the existing equivalents being a bit broken, e.g. the InfoBar:revealed property (and probably same for ActionBar, though that issue is noticed less often).
