Exactly as I was afraid to be.
So, adding a signal connection adds an item into that (unique for all the
application) list, increasing time to lookup and traversing. Right?
And, as I can understand, there is no way to manage different lists of
handlers for different contexts (say: for different threads).
I think Glib will need some low level revisions to match requirements for near
future computation models...
