But that isn't what I need. I need a complete fully functional
interface to GTK, GMP, Xlib, Freetype, Pango,  ... blah blah ..
 ... all generated automatically for any available installation 
using distributed *immutable* annotation files.

Hand crafting this number of wrappers -- and getting 
a portable result -- just isn't an option. Hand crafting
annotation files can be made to work. I can actually

(a) call some GDK functions
(b) use callbacks successfully
