I had argued for doing this for 22.1 already.  I am, however, not sure
whether we should really do significant changes like that in the 22.x
release series.

If I remember correctly, one of the reasons not to switch was that we
had quite mixed reports about what happened with multi-tty, at least
with some Gtk+ versions.

I guess it is clear that this is no 22.x material.
