Quite some of his bugs are misunderstandings on how GTK+ works. For
example it is easily possible to combine image + text in a button,
simply by embedding a hbox into the button which itself contains image +

Also the idea of replacing signals with methods to override is - uhm -
interesting. It basically limits the amount of callbacks from infinite
to one without giving real benefits.

I did not really invest a long time on that page though, since the way
it is phrased makes it a hard read for someone who is convinced that
GTK+ is one of the best toolkits available...
