Ooh, I'd love to see timing numbers. The size differences are pretty
impressive; it would likely make a noticable impact on times for
building releases for garnome users, release team members, and others.
Anyone want to cook up a patch for libwnck/metacity so I can see how
quick and small it is on my module(s)? (Hey, if I'm too lazy to deal
with autotools for my modules and almost always delegate it, I can
also be too lazy to deal with any other system, right?)
I might try.
So far, libwnck looks pretty simple, except for the glib-mkenums which seems to call a lot of shell commands.
What's exactly glib-mkenum used for? (I kind of guess from the name, but I would like to have more background of the problem that it solves).
Does anyone has done this mkenum thing with waf already?
