so, in theory, it should be possible to use girtod to create the bindings.

In practice, it will likely require tweaks for some data types and errors
in the introspection files (for GTK, this took me way more time than writing
the xml parser and code generator; maybe much of the work is already done so
this will be less painful). Also, right now, girtod does not handle certain
things (eg gobject interfaces). so if clutter is using them, support will have
to be added (it wasn't immediately obvious to me how to expose the parts
of the API that i haven't used myself; once i figure that out, adding the 
support will be easy, as most of the work is already done).
