This means that calls to add/remove_child can't be type checked.  The
compiler has no way of knowing whether add/remove_child is actually
implemented by the object called.  

I don't think it is a good idea to export something like that in a
Bonobo interface.  There is no problems doing in the C implementation,
of course.

Btw. is the current Bonobo_Canvas interface going to be depreceated?
It looks almost like a direct translation of gnome-canvas.h into IDL.
