It's been a while since the last time I've written something for
libivrt-glib. So just my two cents: I'd say go with new class esp. if
there's a chance for attributes to expand. Although, we still have to
maintain the old APIs to set some driver attributes directly - I guess
there's no way of deprecating/dropping those APIs right?
