Which is deliberately broken for OSX and MSWindows. From gobject-introspection/giscanner/

No such implementations exist.

I've filed against Pango. 

On a more philosphical note: 
Why is introspection a separate project rather than part of the glib tree?
Why do you guys not have a system in place to make sure that your cross-platform work can't get torpedoed like this?
