[Gtk-sharp-list] Using g_object_set from Gtk#

In Gtk+, g_object_set(obj, prop, value) can be used to set arbitrary
properties of an object, meaning that you can do things like replace
gtk_show_window with g_object_set(window, "visible", TRUE).

Is there any (accessible) binding to this facility in Gtk#?  If not,
is there any way to do this in C# on any generic C# object (which
would be more generally useful).

I would like this functionality because I am working on a Gtk binding
to Mercury, which I would like to have working with both Gtk# and
Gtk+, and it would simplify the work if I can specify things once as
calling object_set in Mercury, rather than once in C# and once in C.

Also, is it possible to pass data to a Gtk# handler and have it passed
back to your callback via. the EventArgs parameter (as you can do with
the data parameter in Gtk+)?  This would be necessary for storing the
Mercury procedure to call from the C# callback I register.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
