well based on mail passing back and forth on the list as of late it
seems that Gtk2::GladeXML is getting a little bit of use and no problems

pretty incomplete (as far as verification and testing goes) but it does
seem to work. so that being said i've bumped the version to 0.25 and now
declair that it is ready for a preliminary, beta quality release. (have
at it, whenever you get a chance, muppet.)

Hi Ross, just to give you a bit of feedback.

I have a couple of applications that use gtk2-perl-xs and libglade,
tough I only use a subset of the functionality.

Here is what I use which all works for me.

    my $glade = new Gtk2::GladeXML($GladeXML, $root);
    $glade->signal_autoconnect(\&autoconnect_helper, "$this");

    my $window = $glade->get_widget($root);

I use my own autoconnect handler which also works fine.

I guess most uses of Gtk2::GladeXML will got little further that this.

if you know much about the details and innards of libglade then step
forth and take a look at the guts of it and let me know what you find
otherwise it will probably forever stay at 0.25.

It is perfectly usable for basic usage, so maybe you should just call it
1.0.  A 1.0 version number will probably get more people to use it than
a 0.25 which could easily seem too unfinished to be usable, which is not
the case.
