Thank you both. Actually what I need is an explanation on how to write the
actual code; I know GObject well, but I'm totally new to C#.
The auto generated constructor is:

        public Map () : base (IntPtr.Zero)
            if (GetType () != typeof (Map)) {
                CreateNativeObject (new string [0], new GLib.Value[0]);
            Raw = osm_gps_map_new();
osm_gps_map_new() is the C constructor of my GObject, but what I'd like to
have is a constructor which accepts a list of properties + values, and pass
it to g_object_newv(). But I cannot find an equivalent for g_object_newv()
in C#, that's why I'm stuck.

Any hints?
