 As for non-existance of "double-clicked": it's obvious that double click 
consists of two clicks, so in case of supporting "double-clicked" signal all
mouse clicks would have to be handled with a doubleclick delay (in order gtk
was able to determine what click it was - single click or double click). As I
understand, gtk developers decided that this was not the right thing to do (I
think they were right too).
 As for CList - in most selection modes (except GTK_SELECTION_SINGLE) it seems
to me that double click will have the same effect as single click - so you
shouldn't worry about handling it separately.

 See FAQs. As I remember, 'selection' is NULL if nothing is selected, if it's
not NULL, then if selection mode is SINGLE or BROWSE, then selection->data is
the index of selected row, otherwise it or the very 'selection' is a GList* of
selected row indices. See documentation.
