GEdit isn't a very simple application, it is a GNOME application and
it might turn out that what's slow on your system is not GTK+ but some
parts of the GNOME framework.
Anyway, whenever you want to optimize things, there is only one way of
doing it and that is to carefully perform benchmarks and to profile
the application in order to find out where exactly time is being
spent. Without such information any discussion on what to optimize and
how is a complete waste of time.
