[Gtk-sharp-list] Databinding in Gtk#

Hello folks,

    Matjaz is back on the channel, and I believe he wants to complete
his work on databound Gtk# controls.

    It just occurred something to me: would it be feasible to use C# 3.0
extension methods to extend the existing controls to be databound,
instead of having to create a new hierarchy that derives from the
original controls?

    There are a few downsides to my proposal, for one, the storage of
information associated with a control (in Matjaz' implementation, for
example the ControlAdaptor and the changed state) would have to reside
in the GLib.Object.Data hashtable and that might not be optimal at all.
