GType's into the functions somehow.

in many cases it's your only option, so you do what you gotta do. a typemap for GType does not belong in Glib itself because the cases in which you need to interface with GTypes should be handled directly. a single typemap isn't appropriate, because the package-to-gtype bindings are not universal. there are no typemaps for GEnums or GFlags, for example.

So... any ideas on how to deal with this? :)

you just pass the package name in the spots where you can't do without a GType. narrow things down as much as possible, so you can do the best error checking possible. for example, if you are working with a factory that creates GBoxed objects, then use gperl_boxed_type_from_package, but if you are using a GObject factory, use gperl_object_type_from_package.
