Avoid using tabs and too long lines as well
This makes version conflicts more obvious.

Entries in the GI_TYPELIB_PATH environment variable are added to the global search path in reverse order - instead, add entries in the same order in which they are specified.
…tory_require Take a GError * for typelib loading code, validate the header. This fixes bizarre errors from gjs where g_irepository_require would happily load old typelibs.
gtk-doc already does that for us
Previously we had both e.g. GI_TYPE_TAG_LONG and GI_TYPE_TAG_INT64, but in fact the typelib is already machine-specific, so it makes sense to just encode this as a fixed type. The .gir remains abstract. We also remove size_t from the typelib; one would never want to treat it differently than an integer. time_t is removed as well; while bindings like gjs had special handling to turn it into e.g. a JS Date object, I don't think we should encourage people to use these POSIX types in their API. Use GTimeVal or the like instead. Because the typelib is now really machine-specific, we need to remove the -expected.tgirs from git. (We could potentially add a check which wasn't just a literal diff later) https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=623774
This patch adds support for instantiable fundamental object types, which are not GObject based. This is mostly interesting for being able to support GstMiniObject's which are extensivly used in GStreamer. Includes a big test case to the Everything module (inspired by GstMiniObject) which should be used by language bindings who wishes to test this functionallity. This patch increases the size of the typelib and breaks compatibility with older typelibs. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=568913
