Yeah, I had bindings in mind when doing the _get_array(), 
_get_array_valist() and _get_arrayv() (etc.) functions.  Shouldn't be 
too hard to wrap, I don't think.  Which brings up something I hadn't 
thought about -- if you *do* see something that's not easily wrappable 
for XFC, please do let me know.

I'm not sure how XFC deals with GValues and GValueArrays, so feedback 
there would be useful.  Of course, there's nothing wrong with 
reimplementing some stuff in XFC by using the D-Bus API directly if we 
can't find a good C API for everything that's also bindings-friendly.

It'll unfortunately require another D-Bus method.
