class dialog : public Gtk_Dialog {
    /* this idle handler will be called when gtk is in its eventloop
       next time, with nothing to do */
    static gint my_delete_obj(dialog *a) { delete a; return 1; }

    void my_ok_callback() { /* connect this to the button press */
       /* do something with dialog's internal data */

This example shows few of the worst problems with gtk--:
1) need to use idle_add().
2) idle_add()'s interface is broken and not typesafe. (its just wrapper
   to gtk's idle_add..)
