Given the name "libmetacity-private", I don't think it's a good idea to
be shipping public bindings to it. I don't think you could rely on this
library to remain API stable. Of course, Elijah would have a better idea
of this. Perhaps the solution is to create a libmetacity that use
functions people may need to use, and a libmetacity-private to do
whatever it is doing now.
