"If you do decide to contribute, please mail your text to Tony Gale, Also, be aware that the entirety of this document is free,
and any addition by you provide must also be free. That is, people may
use any portion of your examples in their programs, and copies of this
document may be distributed at will, etc."

Even though most of these args aren't going to be used too often, it
would be nice to know what they are. Again from the tutorial:

 "Any argument it recognizes from the command line, it removes from the
list, and modifies argc and argv to make it look like they never
existed, allowing your application to parse the remaining arguments."

But what args are removed isn't documented anywhere so the documentation
seems incomplete to someone starting out with gtk+ even though they will
probably never use them.
