You'd think they talk to the GIMP developers before making that claim,

No, but I will stop using the GIMP if it begins to require Gnome
libraries (or, actually, I will split development).

If Gnome gets its act together and properly cleans up their library
offerings so it's not as monolithic and pointlessly dependent on ORBit
I'll consider using some of their utility libraries.  (GIMP really
should use libart, but until libart is easily available separately
from gnome-libs, we can't.)
