This is -OUTSTANDING- information.  I have just one teeny weeny question,
which will cement me as a Newbie. :)

Etc.  I understand that it's an GdkEventKey struct.  There's a lot of
structures returned from GTK.  I understand there are methods associated
with Objects that come back (ala a 'set_text' associated with a GtkEntry
field, etc).  

But how do I retrieve values from the structure?  ala, 'gint' is within
the structure.  How do I get that value, with an explicit
get_gint() method associated with the object?

Somehow I feel like I'm missing something horrifically basic here, and I
do apologize if this results in much eye-rolling.
