...in the currently stable glibmm, at least. Beyond that, in the next
release, it'll be an std::shared_ptr, layering a different layer of
refcounting over GObject's own.
but the point stands: what would a RefPtr to a char* or any other simple
property type even mean? They should just be returned by value, not by
