Do we have a reason to believe they will be removed any time soon?
I've seen deprecated stuff kept for years on end.
GTK+ seems to be reasonably serious about this. The function in question here is still present in the source code, but another one that we used to call (gtk_window_parse_geometry) is already gone.
Or maybe we should ask the GTK developers not to delete them because
we need them?
We could, but I don't think that will have a high probability of success. They would rightly point out that we're doing it wrong.
For the function in question, the definition is actually trivial, so we can replace it with the definition for now to buy us some time.
