Patch for to allow for methods as callbacks


Please accept the attached patch for (from Gtk-Perl-0.7004)
which allows the user to pass a blessed reference as the argument to
'signal_autoconnect_from_package' (instead of the package name) and have
each callback called as an object method (of the passed reference value).

This way, you can have a class constructor which looks something
like this:

   sub new {
      my $proto = shift;
      my $class = ref $proto || $proto;
      my $self  = {};

      bless $self, $class;

      $self->{GOBJ} = new Gtk::GladeXML('');


      return $self;

...and callsbacks looking similar to this:

   sub on_new_button_clicked {
      my $self = shift;


Of course... there may be a way to do this with the existing code...
but I never could figure out how to do it without this simple patch.
If this can be done without a patch... please, somebody tell me how. :-)

I've tested this under 5.005_03 only.  I can't say whether it will
work with other versions (as I don't have any others installed right
now) but it's simple enough that all should be well.  AFAIK, all that's
needed is support for closures... and that's been around for quite
a while.
