Subject: [gentoo-dev] New global USE flag: introspection

Hi folks,
I'd like to propose a new global USE-flag: introspection.

The purpose of the flag is to enable the building of GIR for the
package using dev-libs/gobject-introspection. gobject-introspection is
going to be quite important in upcoming GNOME releases, allowing for
the automated generation of bindings for several languages.

We already have 13 packages using this flag, with several more to
come. The current description being used in packages' metadata.xml
sucks - I'll put something more descriptive in the final flag.

Any objections? I'll wait till Wed (June 23rd) before adding this if
there aren't any.

Cheers!
