/** @defgroup glibmmValue Generic Values
 *
 * Glib::Value<> is specialized for almost any type used within
 * the glibmm and gtkmm libraries.
 *
 * - Basic types like <tt>int</tt>, <tt>char</tt>, <tt>bool</tt>, etc., also <tt>void*</tt>.
 * - Glib::ustring and std::string.
 * - Pointers to classes derived from Glib::Object.
 * - Glib::RefPtr<> pointer types, which are assumed to be Glib::Object pointers.
 * - All flags and enum types used within the gtkmm libraries.
 *
 * If a type doesn't fit into any of these categories, then a generic
 * implementation for custom types will be used.  The requirements imposed
 * on custom types are described in the Glib::Value class documentation.
