Because classes that are used via RefPtr<> should never be used without
RefPtr<>, because they must be reference-counted, because their memory
management depends on this. By making the constructor protected, we
prevent you from ever getting, for instance, a bare Gtk::TreeModel*. So,
because you have no constructor, you need some other way to instantiate a
TreeModel. The API forces you to do the right thing.
