I think my proposal is about 10 lines of code to implement, total.
While it shares a bit of superficial resemblance to GType its
not in any way comparable. 

My suggestion actually *simpler* to implement than Carl's suggestion. 

In terms of making GObject optionally based on GObject, I can't
see how that would work. The code would be different internally
and the API would be different.
