I'd say someth on the order of 10-30k i.e a pretty lightweight C object api.
A lot of the problem is in the fact you drag in all of glib to get GObject.
GObject itself get reject for use in projects often simply because you
need all of glib for GObject. I would think a mini-Gobject would stand
a chance of getting used more often. I know of no core libraries
outside of Gnome/GTK that use GObject mainly because of the size
