Bug Description

Methods using Dee.ModelTag are bound using void*, which makes mem-management very difficult (in vala terms). The class should be defined as a generic one.

As an example currently it's not really straightforward how to put an owned string to a tag, one would probably use:

unowned Dee.ModelTag tag = model.register_tag (GLib.free);
model.set_tag (iter, tag, "foo".dup ());
debug ("%s", (string) model.get_tag (iter, tag));

But the variable with "foo" is freed right after the set_tag call.
