Gintrospection gives more information (things starting with g are
generally gnome related, which this is), and grepping for introspection
will still turn it up.  It also solves the concerns that all the people
on this thread have voiced about introspection being too generic.  I
can't see why introspection is that much easier for people to "grok"?
Gintrospection seems like a good compromise that everyone can agree on...
