Well, that is some kind of a hen and egg problem.
One view on this is, as you say, when there is no app that requires lib
X, lib X won't be added.
On the other hand, if lib X is not present, developer of app Y requiring
lib X might not port/develop app Y for Sailfish or submission to Harbour.
So, there is at least some potential to end up in a deadlock situation.

Futhermore, having a cool tool set, in form of libs etc., available may
also spark creativity among developers and thus result in more cool apps
being developed for Sailfish and pushed to Harbour.
I think we all want to see Sailfish succeed and are highly motivated to
contribute cool content, apps, etc.
