I like Johan's approach for PyBank: add a module to pygobject that
allows using introspection to call new and old libraries while
retaining compatibility with objects from the old bindings.

This allows new apps to use only introspection and existing apps to
move gradually to introspection, starting perhaps with new stuff that
didn't got into the generated/manual bindings.
