Well, for a class function, I mean something like these three functions
from GObject:

    void g_object_class_install_property (GObjectClass *oclass,
                                          guint property_id,
                                          GParamSpec *pspec);

    GParamSpec* g_object_class_find_property (GObjectClass *oclass,
                                             const gchar *property_name);

    GParamSpec** g_object_class_list_properties (GObjectClass *oclass,
                                                 guint *n_properties);

(Refer to:

for more info on GObject.)

With these three function, instead of having the first parameter being "GObject *", they
deal with the class, and have the first parameter being "GObjectClass *".

This is the type of thing I was refering to.

See ya
