| Switching to glib2 only (scrapping glib1) gives you GOption, which
| means you don't need either onboard or external-dependency popt. glib1
| has been frozen and untouched for many years.

We use glib for more than just option parsing, it's used for the string
splitting in parse.c too.  That could be done using GScanner or
similar.  If somebody feels like taking it on as a project, I don't
think I'd say no to patches, but it's not high on my priority list, at
least not ATM.
