Re: IDL dependency tracking

	This is ultra non-productive flame bait; clearly it should be up
to the maintainer - the policy is clear, I'm not going to encourage people
to commit modules to Gtk+ without the headers.


	Some great quotes in here that perhaps show quite how OTT it could
be viewed as:

	"For interactive programs, it is usually a good idea to make the
	program print out a brief notice about copyright and copying
	permission when it starts up. See  the end of the GNU GPL for
	more information about this."

	End of the GNU GPL:

	"If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like
	this when it starts in an interactive mode:

	    Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year  name of author
	    Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details
	    type `show w'.
	    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
	    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

	The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the
	appropriate parts of the General Public License.  Of course, the
	commands you use may be called something other than `show w' and
	`show c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever
	suits your program."

	So - how about some support for this in Gtk+ ? GtkLicenseBox ?

	Of course - many projects currently ommit the headers, such as eg.
the kernel - and it seems to have no significant impact on their ability
to scare large companies into playing ball. But does substantialy reduce
the size of the kernel tar.gz I imagine.
