This is kind of off-topic but, since I am not from the GTK+ world and
none of the Gtk# apps use this that I know of... Anyone care to explain
why you would want/need to do this.  Telling me to look at the GTK+ docs
is an acceptable answer if it is covered there.

Bonus: adding it to our docs would be great!
