One thing I forgot: the plugin API currently exports 
utils_spawn_[a]sync, and a few plugins use utils_spawn_sync. These 
functions were (partially correct) wrappers around the old glib/win32 
spawn, and are now wrappers around spawn_[a]sync. Someday, in the 
distant future, they should be obsoleted...

Well, with nothing from spawn exported, we can be pretty sure that all 
plugins _will_ be using utils_spawn and g_spawn instead. :)

The leading developers should decide - including you.
