I've now checked in most of my non-GError related changes to
guile-gobject. This includes creating the generic functions immediatly
(as suggested by Andy Wingo), not in a seperate pass, which is cleaner
IMO and also reduces the binding load time by about 10% on my machine
(10 seconds -> 9 seconds -- YMMV, I'd like to get this number
