Yes, document what their purpose is. 

[from the Gtk::TreeSelection reference]

typedef sigc::slot< void,
const TreeModel::Path&,
const TreeModel::iterator& >  SlotForeachPathAndIter
  For example, void on_foreach(const Gtk::TreeModel::Path& path, const 
Gtk::TreeModel::iterator& iter);. 

This description is not really helpful. It doesn't explain what the type is 
used for and especially how it is used.

Ah, so I merely have to provide a create function which returns a RefPtr to a 
newly allocated MyModel? But how is the memory managed? Does the base class 
ctor make sure my object is created in this managed storage pool?

Argh. My bad. Thanks for the heads up :)
