Using GObject is not just an internal implementation detail, it would
significantly change the public API. For example all the typedefs would
be changed to refer to the GObject structs. The 'char **' arrays would
be returning GList objects. The 'err' parameters would all be GError
and so forth. The 'osi_generic_t' type & any methods relating to it
would go away.
