Bug Description

In order to be usable in Vala and in order to generate bindings easily the way almost every binding seems to plan on using, IDO should start supporting GObject introspection.

More information on GObject introspection can be found here: <> and here: <>.

(Especially considering the fact that e.g. Unity is written in Vala I think that Canonical should try to do its best to give its libraries GObject introspection support.)

I am getting:

    error: Package `libido3-0.1' not found in specified Vala API directories or GObject-Introspection GIR directories

when I run `valac --pkg libido3-0.1 ...`. I have `libido3-0.1-dev` installed (this is on Trusty).
