I was thinking of DOC---GtkWidget. We already use "--" or "-" for proprties and
signals. I'd liek to not use ":" anymore as they are used for namespaces in xml.
It still works, but one already now get validity warnings for ":CAPS" (also
:CAPS is only needed for sgml and not for xml). The "-" char is a good delimiter
as it is not valid for symbols in C.
