The main reason I disabled introspection in various ports was because it wasn't working for +universal, and I didn't have the time to investigate.  I'm in the process now of fixing that, and libsoup now builds with --enable-introspection, so that's one less hurdle for you.

I don't like the idea of +introspection variants.

I'm on the fence between subport and variant for gtk3.  Thoughts?
