How about reducing of memory consumption(may be in next GTK+ versions..) ?
Problem is following: even very simple GTK-application takes huge place

Memory use can be hard to measure. "ps" shows a "hello world" program
on my ubuntu machine at 11MB, but looking at /proc/xx/status I see
that 'only' 810kb have actually been allocated.

If I add a second label and a vbox to hold the two labels, memory use
goes up to 812kb. I guess a chunk of this 2kb is down to the theme
(clearlooks, I think).

(Hope I've not misunderstood you here)
True: 810kb - in resident memory, and ~10Mb in swap - as i remember.
Some times system needs to working with swap and it is
very slow. The most of all it becames in multiuser system/server.
