Uh, dude, seriously - comparing what we include in gnome-utils (part of our
Desktop suite, and generally installed by default on GNOME systems) with the
CLI tools shipped in *nix systems doesn't make a lot of sense!
We used to jam all kinds of things into GNOME in the 1.x period, whether it
made a lot of sense or not - let's not go down that path again. Baobab is a
great utility, the kind of thing a lot of users will love when they find it,
but it's not something we need to ship as part of the OOTB user experience.
