In general, if your language facilities allow it more easily than C,
it's highly recommended to subclass a widget in order to store
additional state.

Using the GDataSet field of GObject is a last resort — reserved for
libraries, for instance, or for code that has to deal with third party
widgets that cannot be modified to, for instance, add an interface.

Even with GObject/C, subclassing is usually recommended for newly
written code, though it can get verbose.
