You're either wrong now, or you were wrong before when labelling
libchamplain or its dependencies as a GNOME library. As there is no
real definition of a "GNOME" library, you may pick your poison - but
stay consistent.

Glib, gtk+, libchamplain and many other have similar status concerning
GNOME: They are blessed external dependencies. And if you look at who
actually develops glib and gtk+, and how it is developed - well, it
can't get much gnome'ier.

I was talking about a plugin API. We definitively don't have that.

We have an ever-changing set of exported symbols, whose selection is
mostly random (if a symbol is needed in different compilation unit, or
if a plugin from a team member needs it, it gets exported, otherwise
