You should ask this sort of question on the gtk-app-devel list,
not here: this list is concerned with the development of GTK

That said, you can attach any data you like to a gtk widget
using the function g_object_set_data() -- and can then retrieve it
with g_object_get_data(). See the section "The Base Object Type"
in the GObject Reference Manual.
