Before this gets out of hand and I'd like to suggest to first come up
with a robust and extensible syntax, like the GCC __attribute__
mechanism.  Of course, I'm thinking primarily about LISP here:

    #define GTK_ATTRIBUTE(x)

    struct _GtkLabel
      GtkMisc misc;

      char *label GTK_ATTRIBUTE ((public)
                                 (mode read-write)
                                 (set gtk_label_set_text));
      GSList *row;
      guint jtype : 2;
      gint  needs_clear : 1;

My original plan was of course that it comes *from* the .defs file.
But I now see the adavantages of maintaining that information in the C
sources itself.  People will be more aware of it and are more likely
to keep it correct.  Hmm...
