We need to write this up sometime. At a minimum, you need sure that
every time you set user_data, you have a GtkDestroyNotify. Ie, you have:
gtk_foo_set_func (), you need to do:
void gtk_foo_set_func (GtkFoo *foo,
Later on, you need to do (destroy) (data); in your "foo::destroy"

That's what I think makes the most sense. A separate thumbnail API
seems redundant to me.
