/**
 * SECTION:glistmodel
 * @title: GListModel
 * @short_description: An interface describing a dynamic list of objects
 * @include: gio/gio.h
 * @see_also: #GListStore
 *
 * #GListModel is an interface that represents a mutable list of
 * #GObjects. Its main intention is as a model for various widgets in
 * user interfaces, such as list views, but it can also be used as a
 * convenient method of returning lists of data, with support for
 * updates.
 *
 * Each object in the list may also report changes in itself via some
 * mechanism (normally the #GObject::notify signal).  Taken together
 * with the #GListModel::items-changed signal, this provides for a list
 * that can change its membership, and in which the members can change
 * their individual properties.
 *
 * A good example would be the list of visible wireless network access
 * points, where each access point can report dynamic properties such as
 * signal strength.
 *
 * It is important to note that the #GListModel itself does not report
 * changes to the individual items.  It only reports changes to the list
 * membership.  If you want to observe changes to the objects themselves
 * then you need to connect signals to the objects that you are
 * interested in.
 *
 * All items in a #GListModel are of (or derived from) the same type.
 * g_list_model_get_item_type() returns that type.  The type may be an
 * interface, in which case all objects in the list must implement it.
 *
 * The semantics are close to that of an array:
64
 * g_list_model_get_n_items() returns the number of items in the list and

 * g_list_model_get_item() returns an item at a (0-based) position. In
 * order to allow implementations to calculate the list length lazily,
 * you can also iterate over items: starting from 0, repeatedly call
 * g_list_model_get_item() until it returns %NULL.
 *
 * An implementation may create objects lazily, but must take care to
 * return the same object for a given position until all references to
 * it are gone.
 *
 * On the other side, a consumer is expected only to hold references on
 * objects that are currently "user visible", in order to faciliate the
 * maximum level of laziness in the implementation of the list and to
 * reduce the required number of signal connections at a given time.
 *
 * This interface is intended only to be used from a single thread.  The
 * thread in which it is appropriate to use it depends on the particular
 * implementation, but typically it will be from the thread that owns
 * the [thread-default main context][g-main-context-push-thread-default]
 * in effect at the time that the model was created.

 * permitted to make changes in response to a call to the #GListModel
 * consumer API.
 *
 * Stated another way: in general, it is assumed that code making a
 * series of accesses to the model via the API, without returning to the
 * mainloop, and without calling other code, will continue to view the
 * same contents of the model.
