Generate builders #286

In GObject, it is possible to create an object with multiple construct properties with g_object_new.
I wonder if it would be nice to generate builders (using the builder pattern) for objects using their construct properties.
Here is a constructor that I wrote because it was impossible to use it correctly if I set these properties after creating the object.

I believe we could use the builder pattern so that we could construct this particular object as such:

let webview: WebView = WebViewBuilder::new()

What do you think about this idea?
Do you have another idea?

It's a good idea but probably secondary to actually generating a struct corresponding to constructor properties.
