I have no object at this point in time to using g-objects -- except
we'd need to expidite the g2 port for you to use them.  I.e., gobjects
are currently limited to use in the g2 port (see my previous concern
about mixing glib-1.2 and glib2).

So, if you want to work with glib2 and gobjects, you're welcome to
continue your work on the g2 branch and work from there...  I'm hoping
that the port will get far enough along soon enough that we can merge
g2 into HEAD and go on from there... But that's still a few months away,
I suspect.

My previous issue with gobjects was the compatibility with glib-1.2.
I've been using gobjects for a number of things in the g2 port (e.g.
the generic druid infrastructure).  I kind of like the concept.  :)
