Are we talking about glib 1.2.x or glib 2.x here? The library I'm developing 
(wv2, the .doc importer for KWord) depends on libgsf, which in turn depends 
on libxml2 (already a KDE dependency) and glib2 (*some* 2.x version).

Due to that I also support your idea of depending on glib, as long as it's 
glib 2.x :-)


P.S. How do you plan to detect glib in configure checks? Do you plan to use 
pkg-config? Should KDE provice .pc files too? If we decide to do that, we'd 
probably have to extend pkg-config a bit...
