For developers who choose a higher-level language, knowing the basis of

quite the contrary. the entire point of almost all existing language bindings is to make the object model be idiomatic to that language. I work in Gtkmm and have also worked in pygtk quite a bit. There's no reason whatsoever to understand GObject at all with these bindings.

Look, I understand that you think that GObject is pretty cool (it is), that it, along with glib, can serve as useful building blocks of non-graphical applications (they can) and that this fact should be more widely known (it should).

But is that the purpose of a brochure on GTK+ ?
