FWIW I'm not really a fan of the GList API and I think a setting makes things easier for some common cases, but I guess that's up for debate.

The problem is not whether use a list or any other container, but the items, what would you pass? a GtkMenuItem? how can the user know that a GtkMenuItem is the same menu entry he wanted to add? Now that simplify-context menu patch was committed, menu items have a GtkAction associated, we might use a well known id for the actions and use gtk_activatable_get_related_action() and gtk_action_get_name(). We would have to document the names of the actions handled by the default context menu. This is a lot of more complex than adding a new signal.
