Yeah, sealed members might be the most important work from our side, but
faking accessors is quite easy (though boring to do). Basically,
something like

#if ! GTK_CHECK_VERSION(the-version, that-introduced, the-accessor)
#define gtk_some_accessor(w) ((w)->member)

The difficulties comes from:

1) finding the actual GTK version that introduced the accessor
2) the amount of accessors to fake

But before worrying, maybe trying to build with -DGSEAL_ENABLE is the
right thing to do ^^
