Details

Right now, all public types from org.mozilla.gecko are available in the GeckoView AAR, even though we don't consider those to be public API. It may be possible for proguard to fix for us either by obfuscating those types or otherwise making them unusable by external consumers.

Nick had a good idea here -- move all the org.mozilla.gecko stuff into a diferent module, then use 'implementation' in the GeckoView module to depend on that one. That way apps can't access org.mozilla.gecko without using reflection or other gross hacks.

Just connecting related work: as part of my thinking on multi-architecture "fat AARs" (Bug 1522581 and friends), I've been naturally lead to rethink how the GV AAR is structured, and this type of project splitting fits into that story. It's not a blocking relationship in either direction, just "in the neighbourhood".
