For the benefit of the original poster - the alternative to _new() is
that everything is supposed to happen in _init(), and then if you need
more information to set up the widget (stuff that traditionally would
be arguments to _new()), they should be settable via object arguments.

So then you can create widgets with gtk_widget_new(), similar to the
way you create canvas items.
