Looks nice to me. I think it leaks when it recurses, though: you free 
the GPtrArray of children, but don't unref the GVariants. Probably just 
a matter of g_ptr_array_new_with_free_func ((GDestroyNotify)

I guess the only reason for it not to live in dbus-glib would be not 
wanting it to depend on modernish glib. But otherwise I don't see why 
dbus-gtype-specialized.h shouldn't grow this as 
dbus_g_value_build_g_variant () or similar. I could see it being useful 
in more libraries than just tp-glib.
