Generally, unless a new feature is aimed to be included in GIL as an extension,
introduction of a new dependency on an external library should be avoided.

If implementing functionality required by a feature is non-trivial,
given time and scope of your project, then we need to consider
splitting functionality of that feature into core part and extension part.
Then, the extension part can rely on external library.
Then, users will have choice, depending on their needs.
