The same way one uses other GObject signals with C++ (and, in my case,
the way I use Motif :P with C++ in my day job) -- use private static
class methods to act as one-liner wrapper functions to the non-static

In your class, make a static private function with the signal's call
signature.  Pass the this as the G_CALLBACK, and `this' as the user
data gpointer, to g_signal_connect().

In the static private function, cast the user data gpointer to your
object's type and invoke the real non-static method.
