absolutely agree about finally having G-I integrated in the platform.

it would be good to have a gtk-doc release (and people depending on it,
so that distro will finally start shipping a decent version of gtk-doc)
that understands those annotations, stripping them when needed or adding
human readable descriptions (this would also help increase the
consistency in the API references on library.gnome.org). I know that
ensonic is working on this.

I'd obviously favour either option 1) or 2), with a slight preference
for 1). being able to refactor parts of the GType system using
introspection would be a killer feature.
