SignalArgs.Args is just a list of the parameters passed in a signal
emission.  You don't want to be messing around with it, typically.  The
SignalArgs subclasses "wrap" the members of the Args array into typed

In the case of a ButtonPressEvent, SignalArgs.Args is going to contain 1
element, the Gdk.ButtonEvent passed to the internal signal callback we
use to raise Widget.ButtonPressEvent events.
