Hmm, indeed, there are many things to do it seems. Maybe we should let
tail_build like it is now and concentrate on improving gbuild
implementation and gbuildizing modules and when it will be prepared,
add more modules. Anyway, there is not much to add now.

Example of possible todo:
in http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=662c49c020420a878f8feb488ff9b0dc3c0d8a9f
is added animations api just because of dependency but we don't need
to change include paths.
Maybe $(eval $(call gb_Library_add_package_headers,sd,animations_inc))
would be better but I think it's meant just for internal module's
headers because I found:

define gb_LinkTarget_add_package_headers
$(foreach package,$(2),$(call
$(call gb_LinkTarget_get_clean_target,$(1)) : $(foreach
package,$(2),$(call gb_Package_get_clean_target,$(package)))


what probably means that when you run make clean in sd you would also
remove animations' headers ?

So probably we need to add something for headers dependencies when
they are not implied by linked libraries ?
Or there already is something. For now add_api is woking but I'm not
sure it is the right thing.

I'm afraid there is more to do.



PS: if someone wants, would be really nice to gbuildize desktop
