Since we're talking about extreme ideas, how about this: create a light
fork of GTK that contains a bunch of bug fixes that make Emacs happy,
pull it in as a submodule, build it as part of Emacs's
--with-x-toolkit=gtk build, then have the Emacs binary load the forked
GTK library at runtime.  (Or to borrow a term from other language
communities, Emacs could "vendor" GTK.)
