I would just like to say I concur with Alp on the subject, but then I
think of GTK+ as a GUI toolkit. If the GTK+ authors wish to make it
something else then this of course their prerogative, but I would expect
many people to be surprised by this. I certainly would expect many
people to want to write apps in a toolkit-integratable way but without
depending on GNOME. Using GTK would seem to be the way to do this, but
not if it will effectively become GNOME.

I also agree that D-Bus should be standardised as a protocol rather than
an implementation. I believe it's the only way to make it a universal
standard, rather than something some people happen to use.
