Actually, I hear that it's possible to embed Yi inside of Leksah. I have
never tried Leksah out but perhaps that's more of what you're after.

But yes, generic libraries (that can be used by Yi and Leksah) are
certainly a thing that gets written while implementing something (at
least from my experience). It is listed as one of the benefits. It's a
nice side effect I suppose.
