This may have been discussed in the past...
Has anyone ever considered defining the gtk+ interfaces in a
non-programming language? I was thinking of something like IDL or XML.
The bindings for C++, python, perl etc could all use the interface
definitions to automatically generate code. If the interface definitions
were based on the C headers then the bindings, which seem to be mostly
wrappers, could be written automatically, leaving just the internals
(signal systems etc) to write manually.
The reason I bring this up is that the gtk-- web page talks about how it
would be nice to parse the gtk+ source code to make the development time
shorter. This must apply to the other binding writers too.
