   If the maintainer is the one who copy gnulib into her project, the
   end user is relieved of having to install another shared library.

But the maintainer isn't relived of having to keep them in sync,
having it as a package that one can install allows one to keep it
updated.  The user would then just need to update his system and
everyone would be happy.

   I want my projects to build without any external dependencies on
   compliant C89 and/or POSIX platforms, which I can achieve via

I was talking only about functions that everyone uses, but that get
duplicated all over the place (xmalloc, is a perfect example).

   In this case, InetUtils would not lose any usability or
   functionality by choosing SRV via gnulib.  On the other hand,
   without knowing anything about RULI, I think it is possible that
   InetUtils may lose the small and standalone part if InetUtils
   depend on RULI.

True, but using RULI isn't a issue anymore here since telnet doesn't
use getaddrinfo. :-)
