Having a library that depends on a lot of different UI frameworks
might not be conductive to encourage adoption. Since this would mean
that in distributions you would be pulling in the packages for all the
possible dependencies when wanting only one of them.

There is already a Clutter based GEGL integration library, and to me
it makes sense for there to be separate ones for different ui
