I agree with having it as a new global USE-flag, but I am unsure about
enabling it by default just now, since some automagic dependency
problems appeared some time ago :-/, but I will leave this decision to
other Gnome team members as I don't know much about introspection and
maybe these issues got fixed already

Best regards
