GObject can be used from any number of languages (there's bindings for
Perl, Python, JavaScript, various flavors of Lisp, Java, C++, ...), so
the existing bindings should be more than enough for your needs in
principle. Seems like a better strategy than re-writing the binding
layer once per layer, but YMMV.
