No real opinion on this one.

Tim specifically did not want to add these and I tend to agree
with him... if you call g_signal_handlers_disconnect_by_data()
and you can't be absolutely sure that no one else has a pointer
to the data you are disconnecting, then your code has a 
latent bug in it.

It's almost always safer to disconnect only the signals
you know you connected with disconnect_by_func().
