Hinting GtkEntry


Several applications have GtkEntry classes which show a message in faded
text when the entry is normally empty and disabled, wiping it when the
entry is focused (as an example see the search bar in Evolution).

I've made a simple subclass of GtkEntry which does this for Tasks, but
is there any interest of adding this as a "hint" property to GtkEntry in
GTK+ instead?
