I don't know that any of the other kits have libraries, nor do I know that 
they are brain-dead. PolicyKit and udisks seemed to make some sense though VLC 
does not really need to care about them.

They use the stupid glib but they do not force client applications to do so.
They use D-Bus whose wire protocol is brain damaged beyond repair, but it's 
not their fault if FreeDesktop has settled for such a poorly designed IPC.
