	If these are the only gnome applications you use, then why do you use
GNOME?  There are lots of other desktops available, and if you are only
looking to support a few applications, then really all you need to do is
install the dependent libraries.  Just seems a lot of work to me to
install gnome when you really aren't using it. (This coming from a fairly devoted
gnome user)
