app: add comment about why we can't use GimpContainerView API in init()

/* This is evil: the hash table of "insert_data" is created on
* demand when GimpContainerView API is used, using a
* value_free_func that is set in the interface_init functions of
* its implementors. Therefore, no GimpContainerView API must be
* called from any init() function, because the interface_init()
* function of a subclass that sets the right value_free_func might
* not have been called yet, leaving the insert_data hash table
* without memory management.
*
* Call GimpContainerView API from GObject::constructed() instead,
* which runs after everything is set up correctly.
