Extra libraries make applications more bloated (at least 4kb nonsharable
memory per process using the library), whereas adding unused code to a
library hardly affects a process using that library at all.

So, its more likely that things will be added to rather than
in separate libraries. This has been discussed a lot recently, and the
likely approach we'll have for future additions of gobject based glib
APIs is to put them in, but have them be a separate .pc file.
