Well, there's nothing else in this namespace (i.e., amongst use-flags)
which uses this word, and I don't see anything else that would want to
use it in-tree. So, I don't see what the problem is with us taking
over it :)
As for confusions w.r.t. name, the use-flag descriptions exist
precisely to clarify that. I personally wouldn't assume a use-flag's
intention before seeing it's corresponding description.
be/are using gobject-introspection, so this particular usage of the
term will become very prevalent in the near future.
