Introspection is a term from computer science.
Introspection is a way to look at a given program and tell about its functions and data structures. This 
information is then used to access the program’s functions from another program (even in another programming 
language) or to create a documentation etc.

Thanks! That's clear!

As far as I know the GIMP developers use it to access GIMP’s functions from Python plug-ins, but they might 
tell you more about their intentions themselves.
