      the cost is certainly loss of some of the stoneage supported platforms
      that virtually nobody uses today

      the benefits and possibilities are
      * integration of dbus as control protocol
      * better integration of gtk
      * using gio to access files on ssh/smb/nfs/http/whatever else gio supports
      * use of a event/mainloop system that is widely used and understand

      Regards, Ronny
