Well porting g-wrap was the first thing we thought about. GIS (gobject-introspection)
didn't exist back then, but it does now. Switching to GUILE was a wish by some users, but
as I and you said it won't happen. FFI (Foreign Functions Interface) is another way
similar to GIS, but not bound to GNOME-only stuff. redir to GUILE-VM was proposed Clinton

I've explained them more exactly in a previous mail.
