I realize you're talking about the default suppressions file, but of
course valgrind can load many non-default suppression files at once.
Up to 100, according to the man page.

$ valgrind --suppressions=/first/file.supp --suppressions=/second/file.supp ...

So I think there would be some value in shipping separate, official
.supps for glib, gobject, gio, gtk etc etc.

We'd need one for each .pc file, so Stefan's suggestion of a
pkg-config var sounds very reasonable to me.
