Exactly! But the wheels at gtk turn slowly, getting to know that these
classes are list-like would be enough for now. In the future it would
of course be much better if gtk totally integrated the concepts from
abstract data types.

It is very 8mportant to know if a GtkContaineer is a set or if it is
list-like. For many reasons.
