The Vala code that loads effect specifications isn't part of
libcheese; it's inside cheese' vala code.

I guess other applications that would want to use cheese-effects (e.g.
Empathy) would benefit if this code was in libcheese and wouldn't need
to reimplement it.

I have no idea how to include Vala code into libcheese and make that
available as a normal C API like the rest of libcheese.

For such a short piece of code it wouldn't make much sense to have
libcheese split in two languages.
