Would it be a compromise to move glib to and call it fd_glib?

I think - one day - you will have to make a decision on the hierarchy of
technologies: Choose one technology for the tiny common back-end bits
and others for the layer above that.

Agreeing on a common back-end "technology" (fd_glib i would suggest)
doesn't say anything about the design of the common libraries. The
design should be done by both "camps", making their VFS, component
system or whatever compatible, picking the best concepts.

Do you really want that stupid porting and code duplication thing to go
on forever - porting K3B to gnome, porting mozilla, or
the gimp to KDE - which just creates a big mess?
