I find it interesting!

We do need something like this for widgets & Args, so GUI
builders can use libraries of widgets.

I think we should define a widget library initialization/query
function, e.g.

   GtkType* gtk_widget_library_query (void);

which returns a NULL-terminated array of widget types (after
initializing them first, if necessary).
