If you are developing a new application, you shouldn't be creating
GObject classes, unless you need to subclass something to work with e.g.

If your intent is to learn Gtk#, the basic idea is make sure you
.Destroy() things when you're done with them.  Destroying a container
will destroy any contained widgets, so for example you usually only call
Destroy on a dialog when you're done with it, and that will also free
all the widgets it contains.

Basically, just jump in and start coding.  The bindings are pretty good
when it comes to keeping the C ugliness away from you.
