It has been possible to register new widget types with libglade since the
first release I made.  You just need a bit of glue code to apply the
widget properties in the glade file to the new widget.

If all widgets were fully customisable from the GtkArg interfaces, then
this glue code could probably go as well.  I guess this is something to
aim at for gtk 2.0/gnome 2.0
