Would this really be a disaster? I mean, if it *has* to be programmed in C,
relying on glib wouldn't be a bad idea. I suppose even I would complain if
it brought the full force of g* to bear (glib, gobject, gnome-vfs, etc) but
the fact of the matter is that it is inviting a lot of unnecessary bugs to
spurn glib when writing C-based applications.
Or alternatively, what are the other options for a decent C support library?
The is APR (Apache Portable Runtime), which Subversion and Apache 2.0 users
are at least guaranteed to have. But does it implement lists and other such
stuff or just try to make a neutral API for OS interfaces?
