[Glade-users] globals vs locals... again

Nothing should be global.  Making widget pointers global prevents you
from having multiple instances of a widget realised.  It also suggests 
design that violates the principles of modular isolation.  It causes 
interdependencies that increase the maintenance cost.

It's the same problem as initializing the lists. I have
a 'void init ()' function that I could launch at start
and if my clist widget was global, I could access it
in the init() function. It's a pain if you have to
sent the clist pointer to the function because some-
times you need to send many different widgets.
