It looks neat, but I personally would not really want it in GTK+
... basically, we don't need more different ways of creating widget
structures. I think direct function calls + gtk_widget_new()
is enough different styles for GTK+ itself.
For people who want more, I generally would want to promote libglade
instead of introducing something in GTK+. (I'm not saying that libglade
will be everybody's favorite solution, but I don't want to
confuse things by having something else standard in GTK+.)
