If you want to add libdmapsharing to the list of new/recently changed
APIs we're going to start using soon, that's fine with me. The current
list includes:
- gsettings
- gdbus
- gobject-introspection and pygobject
- gtk+ 3
- libpeas
- new GStreamer stuff (GstDiscoverer, encodebin)

and maybe other things I've forgotten. For a lot of this I'm waiting
for the GTK 3 API freeze, though.
