This is clearly workable, but lacks nice features like being able 
to set the specific widget properties at design time.

Okay, well it sounds like trying to *fully* integrate GAL into glade/libglade 
is more work than it's worth at the moment. I'll try and work on 
the dynamic gtk+ arguments stuff that Havoc suggested instead.

If anyone does want me to make my glade patch externally available,
email me. I only integrated e_hpaned, e_vpaned and was half way 
through gtk-combo-box, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to have the 
fact that a decent amount of work has been started recorded in the 
mailing list archives.
