That would definitely work. I'll have to add this to glibcompat.h:

 #if !GLIB_CHECK_VERSION(2, 26, 0)

 static inline void g_object_notify_by_pspec(GObject *object, GParamSpec *pspec)
  g_object_notify(object, g_param_spec_get_name(pspec));

 #endif /* < 2.26.0 */

However, I noticed this file is used sparingly at the moment. Is it okay to use
it in every file that provides GObjects, even if they don't use anything else
from the header?

Using g_object_notify_by_pspec() would avoid looking up a property name to
retrieve its spec instance.
