I think this should be included in License AGPL-3.0 or later (
(and maybe change its name to ocalib or similar), or convert it to a decorator over a class. If we split a lot the number of helpers libraries across OCA, it would be impossible to follow them. Having grouped in one library, will help the discovering and also to join efforts in the maintenance.

Probably it's better to keep it separated, at least for now. Also, handling releases for a narrower scope will be easier.
