[Gtk-sharp-list] Cancelling events

Hey folks,

I've been diving into using druid's with gtk#, and there doesn't seem to
be a way to cancel events. When the DruidPage emits a NextClicked
signal, I want to set the Druid's Page property (it's a non-linear
druid) and cancel the event. I believe that with gtk in C, I could just
make my event handler return false. However, all the relevant delegates
don't return anything in gtk#, so obviously that's not it. I looked up
the way System.Windows.Forms does it, and cancelable events in that
world have a Cancel member in their EventArgs that can be set to true,
but gtk# doesn't appear to do things that way either.

How is a user of gtk# supposed to cancel an event?
