"gir" is not good because it gives near-zero information.

I can still not think of short enough USE flag. I propose we stick to
"introspection". There isn't anything on the horizon that might
overlap with this flag, and I don't see why we should drop using a
simpler flag for the *possibility* that it might overlap with
something else in the future. We can deal with this if it happens.
