Also, unless I missed it in the docs, GAction/GSimpleAction do not 
appear to support associating labels, tooltips, icons, etc with the 
action so would require duplicating these all over the place (similar to 
the current way we do it).

As GtkAction is so useful and what it does is quite simple, IMO we could 
also create our own replacement class for it in the future, or just take 
the relevant source files from the GTK+ tree.
