The idea is to provide both, the all-in-one libwget *and* the smaller / 
multiple libwget-xxx libraries.
The smaller libraries allow to pick a certain feature for your app without 
pulling in all the other function groups, e.g. you could use the HTML or Atom 
parser without pulling in network code.
I believe this might only be relevant in rare corner cases, the Gnunet project 
once asked for it, so I assume there are real use cases.
