As I explained, the reason I think it makes sense to make it optional
is for embedded systems, where you want to enable introspection for
only the subset of your package where you need the dynamically
generated bindings. I agree that this is a tenuous argument in itself,
but I figure that now that we've started this way, and there /is/ a
benefit to it, we might as well carry it through.
I'm still trying to think of a good name. I understand the concerns
about "introspection" being too generic and non GNOME-y, but "gir" is
likely to cause confusion.
