PyGI has removed .attributes, so the replacement to get the GdkWindow)
would be get_widget_get_window() or Gtk.Widget.get_window() from g-i.

However, property_change is annotated with (skip) in the bindings
because of the nature of the data argument - unsigned char * + length
but callers should explicitly cast other property types (that are
greater than sizeof(char)).

Its a bit of an ugly C-api, and I played with the annotations a bit. The
best g-i could do was only accept n-values between 0 - 255 and format=8.

Based on the large amount of c-code in the pygtk override for this
function, I think it might be easier to just add multiple functions to
gdk3 to replace this one

property_change_8(... const guint8 *data ...)
property_change_16(... const guint16 *data ...)
property_change_32(... const guint32 *data ...)

I suggest filing a bug with gtk.
