Here is a sample program which creates a button inside a Gtk window an 
responds to button presses with "Hello, world."  It uses only the 
standard foreign function call interfaces.

Please critique this as I would like to get it added to the 
documentation, but I don't know enough to be able to validate whether I 
am doing things well/correctly.
