[Gtk-sharp-list] Gui designer

Is there any GUI designer, other than Glade for Gtk#? Free or Comercial? 
  I come from a Delphi background, and would like to use Visual Form 
Inheritance, which was a very powerfull feature in Delphi and we used it 
a lot in our Gui/Form designs.  Can Glade do this, or is there another 
GUI designer that can?

eg: Form/Window hierachy looks like this (under Delphi):

   BasicDialog  (it can save and restore its last used position)
  BasicEditDialog  (inherits from BasicDialog, enables/disables
      |             buttons based on the state of a generic edit Object)
  PersonMaint     (inherits from BasicEditDailog and is used to edit
                    a Person Object)

In our applications we would then create a lot of different forms on the 
same level as PersonMaint for our business objects.  If I had to make a 
change to BasicEditDialog (eg: add a help button), all forms inheriting 
from it will show the new Help button in the Gui designer.
