For what it's worth, you can man a GObject derivable without exposing
any of it's members by adding a "Private" member to the public struct
and only define that structure in the source file, and not the header as
well. Basically, how it's defined now, but instead of the whole
structure being defined in the C file, only the private structure would
be defined in the C file.
