By the way, Gtk# uses a different .defs file format and scanner, because
they really really wanted it to be in XML format. I don't think anybody
minds using XML format as the official spec, but the other bindings were
too far along with the existing .defs format by the time Gtk# suggest it
and showed that the had a working XML-format scanner. We were lazy, but
we are likely to continue to be lazy.
