Not now, but in a few weeks time. See below.

I've got a branch that converts all the structure members into proper
GObjects. This makes the library introspectable, and makes bindings
much easier to write (and maintain!). It also lets us add properties
in the future without breaking API and ABI.

I'm planning to merge this branch just as soon as I've got
gnome-packagekit to compile with the new 100% GObject design, which
hopefully will be next week.
