You are right, that isn't any better. I should just give up on these
patches, I clearly don't have the support for them I hoped for.
Obviously, in my opinion we increase the quality of our codebase by
using Vala for this helper class mostly because the number of readable
and documented version controlled lines of code is less than if we
would also version control the GObject C boiler plate. That is not the
only measurement of code quality however and we are simply weighting
the pros and cons differently.
