I also override the default toolbar format for Gnumeric, and force
things to be icon only.  At times the app maintainer knows, via user
testing, bug reports, or familiarity with their app, that allowing
the default will be butt ugly.

I'm with you on the non-portability.  It is the main reason Gnumeric
is burning libgnome depends as fast as it can.  However, its not
clear to me why the result should live above gtk.  Decent toolbar
and menu management tools seem fairly integral to most gui
