I'm with you, split all in small parts to allow port gnome-db to any
other plataforms or widgets sets, I don't know but may other toolkits
:-) or projects like maemo could be.

Libgnomedb now is composed of 3 libraries:
* (along with 97K stripped) which
contains the "minimum" to have data bound widgets and is about 287K
(stripped) on my box
* which has the GnomeDbSelector,
GnomeDbDbmsUpdateViewer, GnomeDbReportEditor and GnomeDbGrayBar
widgets for 88K (stripped)
* which contain GnomeCanvas related widgets for
108K stripped.

As there have been many changes since the last release, I'll do
another one ASAP (3.0 seems very close now...)
