GLib is not designed for a GUI; in fact, there's a lot of GLib running
on headless devices.

the main issue that may or may not a deal breaker for your particular
usage of GLib is that the code does not in any way try to deal with
OOM cases, and that internal state is enforced with abort() in various
places. if that's not acceptable for your use case, you will have to
use another library.
