Dont forget natively buildable menus, pretty much closing any
remaining blockers on supporting builder format (GtkBuilder), also
the ability to parse pango attributes on GtkLabel directly (allowing
translatable strings without markup to have fancy pango sugar).

Nice, I'm going to do my best to pump out some nice editing magic
for the new GtkEntry features from Glade, and I'll see if I cant squeeze in
some pango attribute support on other widgets than just label
(I guess we can set attributes on entries too... not sure what else...)
