Nice idea! (BTW there was a short article about this somehwere, it's
in archives)

You might yank Eider out of CVS (cvs co eider) and look at the code
(it's a big pain to actually compile though).

Here's an example from

       def __init__(self):
                xml =
lade"), "project-window")
                xml.signal_autoconnect (
                        { "on_open_project_activate" : self.open_project_cb,
                          "on_exit_activate" : self.exit_cb,
                          "on_about_activate" : self.about_cb,
                          "on_new_project_activate" : self.new_cb,
                          "on_compile_activate" : self.compile_cb,
                          "on_api_reference_activate" : self.apiref_cb,
                          "on_configure_activate" : self.configure_cb,
                          "on_autogen_activate" : self.autogen_cb,
                          "on_full_build_activate" : self.full_build_cb,
                          "on_project_properties_activate" : self.project_properties_cb })

i.e. you pass in a dictionary mapping the Glade callback name to a 
function to call.
