 10deferred class G_SIGNAL
 11
 12	-- Note: a signal is not a c_struct inherit C_STRUCT rename make as make_struct end
 13	
 14	-- The basic concept of the signal system is that of the emission
 15	-- of a signal. Signals are introduced per-type and are identified
 16	-- through strings. Signals introduced for a parent type are
 17	-- available in derived types as well, so basically they are a
 18	-- per-type facility that is inherited. A signal emission mainly
 19	-- involves invocation of a certain set of callbacks in precisely
 20	-- defined manner. There are two main categories of such callbacks,
 21	-- per-object [11] ones and user provided ones. The per-object
 22	-- callbacks are most often referred to as "object method handler"
 23	-- or "default (signal) handler", while user provided callbacks are
 24	-- usually just called "signal handler". The object method handler
 25	-- is provided at signal creation time (this most frequently
 26	-- happens at the end of an object class' creation), while user
 27	-- provided handlers are frequently connected and disconnected
 28	-- to/from a certain signal on certain object instances.
 29	
 30	-- A signal emission consists of five stages, unless prematurely
 31	-- stopped:
 32	
 33	-- 1 - Invocation of the object method handler for
 34	-- G_SIGNAL_RUN_FIRST signals
 35	
 36	-- 2 - Invocation of normal user-provided signal handlers
 37	-- (after flag FALSE)
 38	
 39	-- 3 - Invocation of the object method handler for
 40	-- G_SIGNAL_RUN_LAST signals
 41	
 42	-- 4 - Invocation of user provided signal handlers, connected
 43	-- with an after flag of TRUE
 44	
 45	-- 5 - Invocation of the object method handler for
 46	-- G_SIGNAL_RUN_CLEANUP signals
 47	
 48	-- The user-provided signal handlers are called in the order they
 49	-- were connected in. All handlers may prematurely stop a signal
 50	-- emission, and any number of handlers may be connected,
 51	-- disconnected, blocked or unblocked during a signal
 52	-- emission. There are certain criteria for skipping user handlers
 53	-- in stages 2 and 4 of a signal emission. First, user handlers may
 54	-- be blocked, blocked handlers are omitted during callback
 55	-- invocation, to return from the "blocked" state, a handler has to
 56	-- get unblocked exactly the same amount of times it has been
 57	-- blocked before. Second, upon emission of a G_SIGNAL_DETAILED
 58	-- signal, an additional "detail" argument passed in to
 59	-- g_signal_emit() has to match the detail argument of the signal
 60	-- handler currently subject to invocation. Specification of no
 61	-- detail argument for signal handlers (omission of the detail part
 62	-- of the signal specification upon connection) serves as a
 63	-- wildcard and matches any detail argument passed in to emission.
