First off, the widget *only* depends on Gtk# atm. It doesn't use any
MonoDevelop APIs. The idea is that you have an MD addin that embeds
this widget in a VBox and adds it to the main window using a DockItem
etc. So this widget can be used out-of-the-box in any Gtk#

Second, i have no idea that those APIs exist & what they're for :)
I'll take a look at them shortly.

See above, my main "goal" is to have a widget that can be reused in
any Gtk# application, not just MD :)

What does using the APIs you mention give you extra? I'd like to keep
the widget as generic as possible.
