I'm not worried about loading more libraries: the change is specifically
to provide more features so extra code is to be expected.  It'd be good
to try and reduce the reliance on Gnus libraries there, tho, or to
rename/restructure them to make it more clear that they're actually
useful independently from the Gnus MUA.

Actually, I see no evidence that #5299 is linked to any of
that complexity.
