Nice!  Didn't test yet, but still nice.

Maybe we should just wait a little further, apparently in 3.22 (?) they
work on some Windows theming and integration.

Hum, interesting, we did have such a report one day, but I never was
able to find out what was doing it.

Agreed, seems more reasonable to stick to something that works,
especially if GTK3 doesn't give us something important.
