Just curious, how do you handle the whole RC<RefCell<>> story in Gtk-rs?

For me it made the point that languages with tracing GC or implicit reference counting are much better solution for doing GUI programming.

Hi Paulo,

I don't know if you are referring to the `clone!` macro described here[1]

Hi, this macro is new to me, it did not exist when I tried to have a go at Gtk-rs, so it simplifies not having to write such boilerplate ourselves, but like the author mentions it doesn't make it go away, it just gets hidden behind the macro.
