if you could show me an example of where it would
reduce the amount of code, i would greatly appreciate
it. You are the fifth person that has recomened using
GtkSizeGroup. Everytime someone says to use it, i
examine my code and only see that it would increase
the amount of code, by maintaining more variables, and
lists (the GtkSizeGroup being a list). I understand
how GtkSizeRequest is supposed to work. I also see
where it could reduce code. What i don't see is how it
could reduce MY code.
