-Description: Programs for the GLib library
- GLib is a library containing many useful C routines for things such
- as trees, hashes, lists, and strings.  It is a useful general-purpose
- C library used by projects such as GTK+, GIMP, and GNOME.
+Description: basic C utilities from GTK+ - binaries
+ GLib is a set of useful C routines for handling data structures such as
+ trees, hashes, and lists. It was originally part of the Gimp ToolKit,
+ now the basis of the GNOME project, but it was split off to form an
+ independent, non-GUI-specific resource.
- This package contains the program files which is used for the libraries
- and others.
+ This package contains some simple commandline utilities for GLib.

I wonder whether the new wording is correct. For my German thinking a
library is to be used/shared by programs and not the other way round.
Actually the package page (1) shows that libglib2.0 is a dependency of this
package. If things are not different in English, the sentence should be
something like

"This package contains some commandline utilities using GLib."
