It sounds very nice.

It seems that it requires a newer version of GObject (2.44+) than I have
on my system (2.42), based on its use of GListModel
G_DECLARE_FINAL_TYPE, so I can't easily compile it.  I guess if we're
going to require a new Glib, then I'll have to upgrade to Debian
"testing" or "unstable".  I'm willing to do that; I hope that it's not a
big deal for our users.
