Just a reminder. The migration guide starts with "... you should first 
get your application to build and work with the latest minor release in 
the 3.24 series.", and we just updated the baseline from 3.18 to 3.20.

So I don't see much of a point for this cleanup in the current gtk3 
subdir. If you want to spend time on it, create a gtk4 dir with the gtk3 
content and start a port with a cleanup and gtk3 3.24. I guess a lot of 
compatibility stuff is still missing from the older gtk3 versions.

That would also be my suggestion for a qt6 port ;-)
