It isn't quite as simple. GObject offers quite a few things that the C++ object model doesn't: signals, introspection and an all-encompassing type hierarchy (GType/GValue) that, unlike the C++ object model, includes primitive types.
Of course it's a horrible pain to use all that from C, but that's why Vala exists.
On a related note, there seems to be a decent C++ wrapper for GTK+, called gtkmm (which also has signals).
Does anybody have experience with it? How does it compare to using Vala, or Qt ?
