        The callbacks are specified by using:
            Properties window -> Signals tab
            in glade-2 (or any other gui designer like gazpacho).

        Methods of classes inheriting from SimpleGladeApp are used as

        It means a widget named foo:vbox-dialog in glade
        is referred to as self.vbox_dialog in the code.

        prefixes a widget has for each widget.

        By using a gui designer (glade-2, gazpacho, etc)
        widgets can have a prefix in theirs names
        like foo:entry1 or foo:label3
        It means entry1 and label3 has a prefix action named foo.

        Then, prefix_actions_proxy must have a method named prefix_foo which
        is called everytime a widget with prefix foo is found, using the found widget
        as argument.

            An instance with methods as prefix actions.
            It means it has methods like prefix_foo, prefix_bar, etc.

    def custom_handler(self,
            glade, function_name, widget_name,
            str1, str2, int1, int2):
        Generic handler for creating custom widgets, internally used to
        enable custom widgets (custom widgets of glade).

        The custom widgets have a creation function specified in design time.
        Those creation functions are always called with str1,str2,int1,int2 as
        arguments, that are values specified in design time.

        Methods of classes inheriting from SimpleGladeApp are used as
        creation functions automatically.

        If a custom widget has create_foo as creation function, then the
        method named create_foo is called with str1,str2,int1,int2 as arguments.
            handler = getattr(self, function_name)

        Equivalent to widget.show()

    def gtk_widget_hide(self, widget, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        The widget is hidden.
        Equivalent to widget.hide()

    def gtk_widget_grab_focus(self, widget, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        The widget grabs the focus.
        Equivalent to widget.grab_focus()

    def gtk_widget_destroy(self, widget, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        The widget is destroyed.
        Equivalent to widget.destroy()

    def gtk_window_activate_default(self, window, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        The default widget of the window is activated.
        Equivalent to window.activate_default()

    def gtk_true(self, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        Equivalent to return True in a callback.
        Useful for stopping propagation of signals.
        return True

    def gtk_false(self, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        Equivalent to return False in a callback.
        return False

    def gtk_main_quit(self, *args):
        Predefined callback.
        Equivalent to self.quit()

    def main(self):
        Starts the main loop of processing events.
        The default implementation calls gtk.main()

        Useful for applications that needs a non gtk main loop.
        For example, applications based on gstreamer needs to override
        this method with gst.main()

        Do not directly call this method in your programs.
        Use the method run() instead.

    def quit(self):
        Quit processing events.
        The default implementation calls gtk.main_quit()
        Useful for applications that needs a non gtk main loop.
        For example, applications based on gstreamer needs to override
        this method with gst.main_quit()

    def run(self):
        Starts the main loop of processing events checking for Control-C.

        The default implementation checks wheter a Control-C is pressed,
        then calls on_keyboard_interrupt().

        Use this method for starting programs.
        except KeyboardInterrupt:

    def on_keyboard_interrupt(self):
        This method is called by the default implementation of run()
        after a program is finished by pressing Control-C.
