Sorry, I wasn't being very clear. When I said "avoid composite children"
I meant avoid forcing the GUI builder to support setting the properties
of composite children.
For example, for many of the dialogs (GtkFontSelection etc.) Glade has
to let the user select the "OK" button (a composite child) and add a
signal handler. But it would be better if the dialog had something like
a "response" signal instead, so there was no need to select the "OK"
button at all.
