I think that having a tool that translates gi xml files to C++ code
wouldn't allow us to use 'any gobject enabled library' from C++. C++ is
a compiled language, so even if you have installed in your system
typelibs of the libraries you want to use, you still need to generate C
++ code, generate a C++ library and install that library. The story is,
however, much more different for interpreted languages.

I do think that a gi-xml to mm-macros translator would be really useful
to ease wrapping of new libraries/types. Wrapping GObject libraries is
sometimes routine, and having some aid would be great.

Best regards,

I do see valabind, which seems to have the ability to generate C++
binding from vapi . Has anyone worked with this before ?

* This lacks STL integration
* Does not uses namespaces
* The header currently uses inline for everything
* Lack of smart pointers
* Would need to implement wrap/unwrap function
* Closer to C, than C++

I believe, with a bit of work this would be much more usable than
current gmmproc method, when extending cxx interface for other

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
