What's more, it's not just "stock items" affected, if you look at the 
Git log, it's actually about 25-50 different incidental APIs that got 
deprecated by him without any prior public/open discussion or 
thoughtfulness on the amount of work, breakage and crappy code that it 
would introduce, or the fact that most GTK+[1] applications are not part 
of the GNOME project.

[1]: GTK = GIMP Toolkit = GNU Image Manipulation Program Toolkit, *not* 
GNOME Toolkit as the GNOME design team seems to think :(
