I can't agree with this more, the desktop and gmc should be split up, one
of the biggest turn-offs of KDE to me was the fact that they did the
window style "the file browser is the UI"  now I know that they are fairly
seperate in Gnome, but I think it should be complete, gmc should just be
another app, and not have control of other aspects of the environment
(such as the desktop)
