Since this is a brand new feature, I have no objection to integrating
this into libguestfs right away (provided it compiles!)

However, if we are going to do this, it would be nicer if the gobject
bindings could be explicitly disabled in configure, ie:

  ./configure --disable-gobject

so that if they cause problems in Fedora/Debian/other distros, the
packager can disable them until they get fixed.  Note that most (all?)
other language bindings can be disabled in this manner.
