Nice work, Pavlo! I wonder if you can work this into a patch for the
GObject documentation :-)

You might want to check out
as well.

In my personal style I would do three things differently, I don't know for
sure whether I'm correct about these or how widespread they are as best

- It's not necessary to override dispose or finalize if the only thing you
do is chain up.
- I would free self->name in finalize instead of dispose, along with any
other memory that is fully owned by the MyPoint instance. In dispose, I
would only drop any references to memory that had been passed in through
MyPoint's API.
- I think it's confusing to have my_point_free() that calls
g_clear_object(), since usually g_object_unref() is known as the standard
way to release a reference to a GObject, and it doesn't necessarily free
the object if there are other references.

Best regards,
Philip C
