Well, you don't permit the GIMP to have the toolbars even if it is OPTIONAL and
it doesn't replace or overwrite any existing GUI policy ?
I think it can be merged as an optional code, and safely ignore that feature
in compile time of runtime switch.
(currently I don't implement any switches though.)

I think open source project can have several policy as a optional
and it can provide alternative way for users who has alternative demands.
