I would say that coverage in the gtk3 stack is "OK" at this point, but
we still have
outstanding unintrospectable APIs; I think pygobject carries a far number of
overrides (and also "backwards compatibility" with pygtk too).  For gjs we
have just been focusing on the shell basically, and not really heavily promoting
external development for a variety of reasons.

No; gtkmm doesn't consume introspection as far as I know, and Vala is still
using VAPI files.  There are various issues with both, the Vala and G-I
is more actively communicated on topic, getting closer but it's difficult.
