Yes I realize that dependencies have often dependencies themselves.
Unless there is something which proves to be impossible to compile on
other platforms, I don't see the problem.

A possible problem is that all of these extra dependencies have to be shipped in macOS and Windows 
packages. If in any of these dependencies serious bugs (e.g. security) are found, we need to ship updated 
packages. A problem like this does not exist on Linux since you would typically simply update the 
distribution packages (although not sure how that will work for Flatpak).

A potential solution could be to write a Mac-specific GIO TLS backend that depends on macOS system 
libraries which can be shipped instead of the default TLS backend that depends on gnutls.

Of course, this would make total sense. If there is such a backend (or
if someone, like you on MacOS, write it! ;P), we could have different
dependencies for different platforms. No prob. :-)
