Well, I think we both agree that there needs to be an API somewhere for storing the metadata in memory. I'm looking forward to your prototype. It would be great if the API were integrated with GClosure; that way language bindings could leverage existing marshaling code to support invoking methods introduced by the language.

I'll be able to tell more after hashing out my
