gobj-bindings ?

Bindings is a common enough term in use flag descriptions, etc, that users 
should at least have an idea what it means.  Introspection?  Not so much.

Or perhaps dyn-bindings ?  As a kde user without gnome merged, however, 
I'd prefer gobj-bindings, tho, as it's a better memory prompt to what it's 
related to, and that I'll likely want it off.  It should work similarly 
for gnome users who'll likely want it on.
