(Especially when glade-3 does not actually support generating any C code
or updating the C source code files output by glade-2.)

Any bugs filed so far should be closed forthwith. The comment is old, it
relates to a function of Glade that was removed by Glade upstream and
whether the .glade file is distributed or not, the C can no longer be
generated with the current version of glade.

All this process has really shown is that upstream teams are commonly
lazy about removing old comments. Yawn.

Sorry, Sami, but this was a waste of effort.
