Well, the solution for the Widget calls is simply: GTK_GDK_RECTANGLE (or
whatever the appropriate naming convention is). I'm not at all sure about
the GList items, come to mention it.

Furthermore, these pointers don't give any hint whether the data is
incoming or outgoing through those pointers. Maybe a set of flags (READ,
WRITE, and LIST) to go along with the type would take care of details.
