It is true that gnulib is usually copied into packages.  However,
it is possible to put multiple gnulib modules into a single

mhm, so at least ATM, it's most of the time static. would it be much

for gnulib at all to install such scripts?

gnulib doesn't provide a stable ABI, so while it is _possible_ to make a shared library, it probably wouldn't really be useful.
