It is not a huge rewrite to eliminate glib2 except for the support for filters with regular expressions, which uses glib2's regexp engine. Replacing this will therefore instead add a dependency on pcre or oniguruma, for example. Whether this is an improvement can only be determined by trying, I guess.

Is there a lot of reason to use glib2 ? In other words, does castget use much functionality of glib2 ? If not, is it possible to easily rewrite castget to not use glib2 ?

For embedded systems with not much storage space it makes much sense to drop the glib2 dependency completely (every 100kb counts).
