I don't think there is much point in that. Users will not get all the
GNOME consistency benefits from the `stripped' version -- it will lack
session management, stock icons, standard dialog boxes, help system, etc.
The GNOME libraries are there to make the programmer's life easier by
providing a nice framework to build applications; I don't see why you
would want to do the same stuff by hand all over again.
