Or we could reject GTK+ 3.20.4 and later for Emacs 25.1 at configure
time.  I have no idea which alternative is better.  (And no, lack of
complaints doesn't seem to be a good enough indicator: look at the
number of serious problems with emacs-25 which are only now starting
to be reported.  It sounds like only pretest releases are used widely
enough to catch some configurations.)

We don't have experts available, it seems.  We have no idea what we
are doing with these changes.  I hoped the GTK people will be
motivated enough to help us out, but it doesn't look like it's
happening, sigh.
