In general I like your idea, specially with Gtk+ 3.0 in sight we know we can 
break API soon so it seems like a good idea to gain experience in that area 
and it would not hurt us too much to add something stupid.

One minor issue, I would prefer a mailinglist (maybe I'm just too old):
	- With a mailinglist it is really easy to participate
	- I can filter using X-MalingList and get notifications
	- We can detach implementation and API.

So yes, I'm happy to review patches adding API that has been discussed and not 
been vetoed. I think I can be happy with such a scheme. So it depends on how 
Alp and others feel about. If we see that this is ending in a disaster we can 
adjust the process and Gtk+ 3.0 is there to rescue..
