Unfortunately you can't really get a list of all the types at runtime
and then loop through them. Non-fundamental types have to be registered
with the type system by calling name_get_type() so you have to call all
of those functions somehow. You can get a list of all those function
names by looking at the .def files distributed with the source. Then you
could write a simple script to generate a program which calls all of

You can't query a GObject for the enum and flags it uses, but you can
use the .def files mentioned above to find them. They are all in
uppercase and look like GTK_TYPE_WIDGET_FLAGS or similar. Then you can
turn them into the type name, GtkWidgetFlags easily. (You could also
parse gtkenums.h to get the type names) From that you can
get the GType and use the g_enum funcs to get all the nicks and values.
