meaning if a user runs a wxGTK app along with a GNOME up it'll eat up twice
the memory, because you'll have two versions of said functionality in memory

not to mention that a user like my mom, differences between what wxGTK and
GNOME do to achieve that functionality can be quite confusing.

To integrate well in a GNOME enviroment, basically means using the GNOME
libraries, so that everything functions in the same manner and consistently.

You don't need to offer all the features of GNOME, but the ones that wxGTK
does, it should do them the GNOME way, not in it's own way.

That is, IF it's supposed to integrate real well with GNOME ...
