Even thou GLib doesn't directly support it, it is of course possible. I
don't know about interfaces specifically, but it's probably in the lines
of OO in general. So I hope this helps.

First of all you must have a function pointer in each instance, not just
in the class (which is what you get by default). Something like this:

    struct MyWidget{
        void(*row_draggable_func_pointer)(struct MyWidget*)

Then make a function that calls the per-instance function, perhaps
something like this:

    void dynamic_row_draggable_func(MyWidget* this_widget){

And just then you can override the function per instance:

    widget_instance->row_draggable_func_pointer = my_row_draggable_func;
