all good, except that in an ideal world, the sensitivity changes are
applied to GtkAction's, not widgets. this way, keybindings and other
methods of driving specific actions are all taken care of together.

of course, not many GTK apps have been written with an action-centric
approach, which is unfortunate.

but since GtkActions are pointers, and can be made both visible/invisible and/or sensitive/insensitive using available methods, can the paradigm not be extended to work for these "user-available functions" as well?

i would think yes, but since my program doesn't employ GtkAction (i.e., i am unfamiliar with its particular implementation details), perhaps i'm missing something.
