The amount of ifdef-ery here rises to a level that we usually try to
avoid. Overall I need some more time to think about different ways to do
this, and see if any of them are better.  I haven't coded it up yet, but
I'm think a macro that expands to unused() for gmime-3.0 might be a
cleaner solution than some of the inline ifdefs here.
