The g_list_* API is not supported directly, but APis using GList can be
supported using annotations.
If we avoid GAsyncResult we'd just need to annotate the callbacks to know their

GValue* makes a lot of sense, perhaps some extra C sugar should be added to
hide GValue for the C users, but it doesn't seem to be too bad as you

Someone (probably I) need to take a look if gjs/pygobject can handle the
patches you sent. Please leave this bug open until it's confirmed that
GstIterator can be used properly from at least one dynamic/introspected
language binding.
