The point is, our "wrong" way of doing things is likely to stay for a
long time the only way a GTK Emacs can be built, so unless there's a
possibility to use some other GTK functions to the same effect, it is
more probable to lose a GTK Emacs than to have a GTK rewrite of
Emacs.  Maybe if they understand this, they will reconsider.

That's okay as well.
