RE: [Vala] Lacking of a ref-counted string.

I think it has what you ask for, if a class doesn't inherit from gobject then internally it inherits from gtypeinstance which is what you said.

Sometimes people don't distinguish between the two, though.

However I want compact non-gobject non-gtype instance (I want I want... Never satisifed with what Juerg et al have produced for me...)

You could just wrap simple GObjects around GString and GPtrArray

Wouldn't that be overkill ? do we need signals and properties for strings and arrays ? maybe GLib/GObject should have something like GstMiniObject that only provides reference counting and no signals/properties ?
