Yes, but I think that's how we create the underlying C GObject even when
we use a C++ constructor. It will need some thought/investigation to
figure out how to best solve this.

It just registers the GType with the Glib::wrap() system, so that it
knows which wrap_new() function to call when it is given a GObject of
that GType.

Yes, it's becoming a bit difficult.

At the very least, if you don't make progress, please mention this in a
bugzilla report, so I (or someone else) can look at it if I have time.
