I disagree.  Gtk# is a set of bindings for (among other things) GTK+.
It is more important that those already familiar with GTK+ know what
things are named than it is that people coming from a different
toolkit altogether know what things are named.  I can understand your
position, but you are learning a new toolkit; it would not make sense
for those who are not learning a new toolkit to have to "speak two
languages" when using the same thing.
