I don't know that you can use the current gnome libraries with out gtk (I
believe gtk is tied to it pretty closely.  -- What is the dividing line
between libgnome and libgnomeui, by the way?)  But if an app that used Harmony
as its toolkit provided all relevant GNOME services (talked to other GNOME
CORBA services when appropriate, followed the gnome style guidelines, etc) I
don't see why it shouldn't.

[By authoritative answer, are you asking for Miguel's blessing or just
wondering whether anyone can come up with a reason it should/shouldn't?]
