Hi Miguel,

for the new program is possible to avoid the Gnome dependency, but
when try to port an already developed program you can find a program
that use Gnome library.
In the case of gbrainy it use only Gnome.Application so migrate to
pure GTK is easy to do ... :)

To have a version of this library with a subset of dependency library
is a good thing, I suppose. This can be useful not only for OLPC where
Gnome is missing, but also in other embedded system like nokia maemo
where gnome is present but someone dependency can to be absent.

Bye, Torello Querci
