Sets the meta marshaller of closure. A meta marshaller wraps closure->marshal and modifies the way it is called in some fashion. The most common use of this facility is for C callbacks. The same marshallers (generated by [glib-genmarshal][glib-genmarshal]), are used everywhere, but the way that we get the callback function differs. In most cases we want to use closure->callback, but in other cases we want to use some different technique to retrieve the callback function.

For example, class closures for signals (see g_signal_type_cclosure_new()) retrieve the callback function from a fixed offset in the class structure. The meta marshaller retrieves the right callback and passes it to the marshaller as the marshal_data argument.
