[Gtk-sharp-list] GtkButton in_button sruct member

I've been testing implementing custom widgets with Gtk# and have hit a 

The current widget I was creating is essentially a drop down calculator 
control to handle a currency field ala Quicken style. When I hide the 
Calculator widget after the user is done, I need to change the in_button 
member if the mouse is no longer over the drop button. I have modeled 
the class after the source for gtkcombo.c. The call I am trying to 
reproduce is below...

if (GTK_BUTTON (combo->button)->in_button)
      GTK_BUTTON (combo->button)->in_button = FALSE;
      gtk_button_released (GTK_BUTTON (combo->button)); // can do this 
with widget.Release();

...so the question is, are their any plans on exposing struct members 
that are not accessed through an existing api? If not I may need to role 
my own button class to get around this if I can't find another way.

This is my first time posting to the list. If this topic is not valid
