We should maybe expose some of the handlers from gtkblist so that,
wherever a GtkIconView ends up implemented, it needn't duplicate a lot
of the handlers. For example, the right-click context menu handler
should be the same for both, and the "row-activated" handler should be
re-used for GtkIconView's "item-activated". I speculate that some of the
drag-n-drop handler could also be used.
