	Yes I can see that it is possible if you have the following:

	myObject.signalConnect (obj, "signal_name",
				anObject, "methodOnAnObject");

	But that rather sucks too - albeit slightly less than some other
approaches. Then at least you can get the type information out of the
equation relatively easily. I would much prefer to pass
anObject.methodOnAnObject to the signalConnect method, as a generic
function pointer.
