Does somebody know how to get a column of a CellRenderer in a Callback ?

In C :
This is how you would get the column in the callback
	column = g_object_get_data (G_OBJECT (cell), "column");
This is how it was set when the renderer was being instanced.
	g_object_set_data (G_OBJECT (renderer), "column", (gint*) 	   

The equivalent in C# looks UGLY !!!!

This is how I set the column Property
     GLib.Object Ugly = (GLib.Object) rendererToggle;
     Ugly.SetProperty ("column", new GLib.Value ((int) Column.Alex));

This is how I retrieve it
	GLib.Object column = (GLib.Object) o;
	GLib.Value columnValue = new GLib.Value();
	column.GetProperty("column", columnValue);
	Console.WriteLine("column", columnValue.Val);

I hope my code look offensive enough to get a quick reply :-)
