My first fear was about the code style, but you made a good work here,
looking at this code is just look to any other Hildon widget, well
done! (although now I should revise the code itself if I have some
free time :|).

Only a question: why did you use svn. Probably this seems a kind of
nitpick, but svn is somewhat declared "old fashion". GNOME has
switched to git, and hildon itself uses git since some months. Any
reason to use svn ?
