Not only I love the idea, but I think the way you implemented it is
*very* clever (I like how you are using XmlElement components mapped to
the GUI).  

Integrating something like this into Gtk# at this point might be
troublesome, because we are so close to the 1.0 release time frame.

But would you be interested in exploring yourself how to integrate this
idea directly into Gtk#?
