I read the following comment on the GUI tool for the Mono coverage
analysis tool, it seems like a nice starting point to add some
customizations to Gtk#:
// GTK# impressions:
// - there are no convinience functions, like new FooWidget (parent)
// - the generated sources are hard to read because the API functions are
// mixed with internal functions, export directives etc.
// - the app is slow to start up, slower than Qt#. Afterwards, it is faster.
// - the open file dialog requires 30 lines in Gtk#, and 2 lines in Qt#
// (and it prints a lot of gtk warnings !)
// - how to set a file name filter in FileSelection(Dialog)
I think point #2 could be fixed by doing a:
#region Auto-generated code.
#region Customized extensions
As well as having the documentation in place (Duncan and myself have a
few tools to help this happen).
