I don't think my way is ideal, I am probably over-engeneering a lot
with it, but I'll tell you.

As I came from a background with basically Object Oriented languages,
I simply use every major entity in my application as a GObject.  It
takes some time to get used to the GObject stuff, but it is well worth
it for Gtk+ Applications. Keep in mind that your mileage may vary,

Actually I think it would be good to hear what others have to say
about it. What do you think, guys ? set_data ? global stuff everywhere
? lots of gobjects ? or perhaps a mix of all that ?
