As I've told Johan, this won't be possible for significant amounts of

looking at it.

PyGTK has used that concept quite successfully for a long time.

But nevertheless, it's up to the bindings to decide what they are going to do with the information. If someone wants to write a completely automated binding they should be free to do so. However, I expect most bindings to have small or large parts of manually written APIs on top of the one exported in the GIR/typelib.
