It is not a GNOME-only flag. It affects several non-GNOME-only
packages as well (udev, upower, udisks, dbus, gstreamer, other
freedesktop projects,  pulseaudio).

Which should not be an issue since any library that has some sort of
introspection can use this flag (and the use.desc can be changed
appropriately at that time if it does not use gobject-introspection).
