Yes that's the idea, if the use-case is common enough and considered as
a "good practice".

At least doing such a thing should be easy by allowing to map an object
properties to an object in the glade file, like:

gtk_builder_update_object_properties (widget, "widget-name");

then it would just be a matter of getting the first child of
"widget-name" and then updating its properties. Also, maybe an helper
function to do that would be sufficient instead of a full-blown class,
so that it can just be called in my_dialog_init to add the child widget
and update its properties according to what's specified in the glade

Sorry if I'm not clear enough.
