Ok, I suppose i'll get used to it, thanks!
Althought there is one thing I still dont understand..
Is there any documentation on how to do text rendering to a drawable?
GTK+2 seems to have such methods (althought inside a "deprecated" ifdef).
I noticed that now I am forced to use pangomm, but i really cant
