Gtk+ depends on glib; if you're using Gnome or another Gtk+ based
application, you need it. A lot of things depends on glib; and it's
relatively small, so I don't see the need for removal...

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to
be discarded:  that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
