Please correct me if I made wrong assumptions here. I believe it is possible
but may not be feasible since they are GObject which has very similar nature
with ObjC's Object except the lacking of dynamic binding. This also means
that we can't just resolve their methods' addresses by some strings at runtime.
So we probably have to redo all their classes manually.
