Pango and ATK both use GObject, so, would that mean that we're going to
have to write a replacement for them to share it with KDE when it comes
to sharing accessibility/fonts because of the gobject dependency?

I put my vote for sharing as much with KDE (and others) as possible, and
I really like (and follow) the discussions taking place in, but if sharing means replacing all GNOME technology
"because it uses gobject", then I think all the concerns raised by
people on this issue are totally right. If they are to be replaced with
technically better implementations, then that's ok, but based on poor
arguments such as "it uses gobject" might be a good reason for KDE, but
not at all for GNOME.
