Yes, but instead we have a lower-level library that upper-level libraries
provide pluggable modules for. This is similar to how librsvg provides GTK+
with an SVG pixmap module, or fontconfig/totem provide thumbnailers for
The basics are available in GTK+ and Nautilus, but stuff that depends on
them can provide more features through modules.
