Traditionally the way this is done is to extract common elements into
a library and there are already a fair number of such libraries 
provided by Fedora.   I guess you're saying that there should be more.  
Can you give one concrete example of code that should be pulled out 
of some application and put into a library?

Once you've identified the first such oportunity you'll have a better
chance of attracting people who are interested in the specific example
you put forward.
