remember qt3/qt4, gtk/gtk2. We want to avoid repeating these "mistakes"
hence the guidelines already exposed back when we introduced gtk3 to the
tree.

As you may have noticed, this is still the solution applied for things
hard to split or slot like gtk-vnc or avahi but we didn't see the need
to have such USE flags when the library was so easily slottable.
