I'd rather consider using Vala in that case: It gives you a highlevel
syntax for the GObject system, whilest generating native, binding
friendly code. GNOME avoids using high-level languages for libraries
for good reason: Bindings and politics.

Used it for toying with some document model for printing [1] and expect
for minor bugs in Vala's code generator, which where resolved quickly,
vala worked pretty well for me in creating a native GObject library.
