Can you elaborate on why glib should be replaced?

For systems that don't support glib or where glib is undesirable,
mono's eglib could be used instead, which is really tiny, BTW.

A large part of mono applications is already relying on glib
(as part of gtk/gtk#/gnome), so adding just another heavy dependency
is not an option IMO. Not to speak about having to deal with 2
message queues, C++, license issues (Novell won't be able to
re-release the runtime under a non GPL based license anymore).
