I perfectly agree, let's just port things for the moment. As an
exception, I'll fix the thing of pluggability as I already have some code.
BTW, while making the configuration of Thunar pluggable, I discovered a
possible Gtk bug present in version 2 and 3 as well. If you use GtkImage
with markup link, you don't get anymore the "activate-link" signal when
you plug in a socket. I submitted a bug report with some minimal code to
illustrate the bug.
