Long term, bindings should of course be generated (or rather be
dynamic using pygobject, when/if possible).
However I need layer groups exposed for the Python API in order to
support layer groups in OpenRaster, so I will probably do these
bindings for 2.8. Just need to find the time. Do we have a bug open
about this issue?
