Great, that makes things easier.

Okay, but in this case it's very confusing - a user should never call
Entry.StartEditing() should they? I've never encountered it using
'normal' gtk+.

I'm not sure what that even means - IIRC a lot of those "virtual"
declarations are along a similar theme, which is I think what confused
me in the first place.
