I fail to see the scariness. It's a nice lib, a free implementation of a publicly specified protocol, and users like to be able to access their data.

To be fair, most dependencies on libgdata in GNOME are like the dependency in Claws-Mail: Optional plugins for users of Google services. (Though technically, it's a blessed dependency, so making it compile-time optional would not be necessary. But even if the lib was required, that still wouldn't force anybody to use services they don't like.)
