As far as I can gather, destroy is not in GObject because it's a
signal of GtkObject.  At this time GObject does not yet have signals.
The destroy signal is called from the GtkObject::shutdown override,
so it all really works like before as long as you are dealing with GtkObject

I'm not sure if destroy will move to GObject when the signal stuff is moved.
In fact I'd be interested in an answer on that issue myself.  Tim?
