Unfortunately I couldn't attend the meeting and affect the outcome of
the discussion, but I still want to comment on it:

GObject C boilerplate is a general productivity problem not bound to
any specific kind of code, it doesn't make sense to treat core and UI
code differently.

Regarding code generators: that's basically how we will use Vala, I
don't see why e.g. turbine would be better to use for this.
