What about deprecating XfceDecorButton, no Xfce4 source uses this widget.

I was also looking at XfceDecorToggle. It seems it just draws an arrow 
image that can reflect a toggled state . The only widget that uses it is 
XfceToggleButton, which is a toggle button that just displays an arrow. 
What about either putting the source for XfceDecorToggle into 
XfceTogglebutton, or renaming XfceDecorToggle XfceArrowToggle, or not 
installing xfce_decortoggle.h and make it a private header.
