[snip API]

I noticed the new API in devhelp, but not how to use it. I mostly went
by tests/testdnd.c.

How do you tell a widget to use a GtkTargetList? Create an empty
GtkTargetEntry, call gtk_drag_dest_set with empty entry array, then call

I'll add the new stuff to my tutorial ASAP.

Also, I tried passing an gint32 in my tutorial since that was the
simplest datatype not included in your new API. Is there a reason you
