2) The old perl way of connecting signals allowed for multiple items
of data to be passed as args after the callback arg. I don't know how
it works but the effect is that the args to the callback can be got by:
  my ($widget, @data) = @_;

If the callback is for an event, the event structurea is added at the
end so a signal handler could get the args eg:
  my ($class, $data1, $data2, $data3, $event) = @_;

depending on how the signal was connected. I am not sure what the best
answer is - I remember some threads on the gtk-perl list ages ago.

I guess that it might be simplest to insist that all data is passed in
an anonymous array/hash so that only a ref is passed - which is what
happens already I guess :)

I'd favor the only-one-scalar version: it's cleaner and probably
less error prone.

3) I have written (and attached) a Gtk2::Test module and a script that
will generate test scripts for each widget mentioned in the gtk2 docs. 
These scripts can be extended as methods are added. I guess that if you
want to use them it would be best to add them to the t/ directory after 
the widgets are added. 

Good! The more automatic tests we have, the best it is. How do
you think it may integrate with my previous mail about automatic
