Right, I'm confusing things. Matthias explained this to me at Nove Hrady
(which is where my whole explanation of how I wanted to do gobject came
from). Just infer the IDL from the C/C++/C#/whatever native code,
possibly including magic comments or annotations, then pack the
interface metadata into a variable, and dynamically export the methods.
