Nice :)

I can't help but wonder if this is going to cause common problems where
a system package links against an old version of glib, which will then
conflict with the glib inside of the jhbuild. I've run into this several
times when using 'skip'.

I haven't seen the problem with the new jhbuild, but I'll let you know
if it occurs.
