Vala currently uses g_simple_async_result_* for implementing async
functions and methods, which is causing a lot of deprecated warnings
when compiling against current GLib. There are currently patches
porting it to use GTask in Bug 763345, however there's an corner
case that needs addressing somehow: Vala allows async functions to be
executed when there is no main loop running - see comments 11-13 of
So, per Carlos's comment #13, can we get some advice from GLib
developers about whether they would be interested in supporting the use
of GTask without a main loop running?
