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