Don't worry about asking, that's what the list is for.

OK, this is an old issue, and not just with GOB, many people solve it in
different ways. The way GOB solves it is this: In the header file, when it
declares the typedef for the type, it declares it as:

#ifndef __TYPEDEF_FOO__
#define __TYPEDEF_FOO__
typedef struct _Foo Foo;

You can just add this to %h{ %} in bar.gob instead of including foo.h. This
way you can refer to the Foo type without having to include the entire file.
