Yeah, it is true, it is used by gtkblist.

I just read a little bit more on how we use it and I think we only need
this class to be able
to hide/show the triangle for the Contact. Is this correct?

Isn't there any other way to achieve this? I found GtkExpander, but it
doesn't allow to
hide/show the triangle.

Should we send this code as a patch to Gtk+ so it get's upstreamed?
