I second that, I'm just learning to use gtk# and I already don't
particularly like using glade within gtk#, I'm hand coding all gui at the
moment.  To each their own, which is why sane names for everything is

You say "That just cuts flexibility[...]", what if people _want_
flexibility to code it by hand? You're assuming that all people do every
GUI-related thing in glade? That's not flexibility, that's forcing
people to do it in a certain way.

Don't missunderstand me now. I use glade for almost everything I do, but
I also like to go "into" the code and "fix" minor things sometimes.
Having a _sane_ name on the property makes the code more readable.
