There is no such thing as GNOME dependency (aside packages :). There are
dependencies to several different free libraries, which happen to be
distributed as a part of GNOME. And some libraries has every program to
use, if it does not want to reimplement all things under the sun...
Once gnome-print stabilizes enough, it would be meaningful to separate it
into GUI and backend parts. GUI part needs and will always be needing
libgnomeui for print-preview canvas, dialogs etc.
Non-gui base requirements are only Gtk+ (object system) and libart
(drawing primitives). Not very much, I think...
Still I think that in near future libgnomeui is installed in most
computers, so this is no-issue.
