Could you give me some example, please. It seems wise to know for sure.

Some quick examples:
* as Libgda has some objects which export attributes directly rather than using accessor methods, any change in Libgda has an impact on the UI side which use them
* The UI part can benefit from the binary relocation code of Libgda without having to have its own
* Having a control center (to manage DSN, much like ODBC's one) is a necessity, but this is a GUI program which shares some code with the UI part, so separating them would result in code duplication

Anyway, the UI part in Libgda (as it's now in the master branch) is still optionnal (activated if GTK+ is found), so Libgda can still be compiled without any UI part at all.
