Kelly, please don't spread FUD.  People build gnome-libs on Debian
boxes, old broken Slackware boxes, FreeBSD, Solaris, and other
beasts.  What library are you talking about?

I think the GIMP would gain a lot from using the core GNOME libraries;
right now it has a lot of reinvented wheels as it is.  Users are going
to want a consistent desktop experience, so the GIMP should not stand
out as a sore thumb.

Mind you, all the user interface improvements that the GIMP team has
done are excellent.  It is much better than the 1.0 series.

Keep up the good work,
