the dependencies are, in fact, not the same.

with just C api, 2 libraries / applications cannot use features of each
other.  ie, gal cannot call eel functions if eel calls gal functions.

however, if the glue between them is simply bonobo, they actually can
use each other, instead of the one-way dependency tree we now have.

yes, both libraries depend on certain versions of each other. that is
what package management systems are for.
