Re: GIR-based vala bindings

Hi Lorenzo,

thanks a lot for looking into this! I wasn't aware of the possibility
to generate vala bindings from girs (well, I don't use vala by myself)
- this will simplify things like making identical overrides separately
for vala and girs and the annoying renaming of all the vala files
after every release to have the correct -0.version suffix. Perfect!

Aren't they? They should be generated when you run ./configure and
should exist all the time during make. What's the problem?

What happens? Could you post here what you're putting into the
makefiles to see what you are trying to achieve?
