I mean, is it convenient? is it usefull to use conventions from GObject?

I think an exposed API must be as mininal as possible, but feature
rich, clean and not expose any "potencial dangerous" functions used
just in the core's internals.

I'm writing a test program to use the actual API, measure its
usability and file bugs if potencial.


QOF headers has a lot of coments pointing potencial bugs or even
actual bugs Can I add this as bugs in bugzilla?

I'm the one who wants to change "a lot of internals" and "exposed
externals", and yes I think there's better time than other to make
changes, but the main developers must agree what and where (defining
the future of the core) and start aa quick as possible, becouse we
need to spent a lot of time.
