I'm saying if wxGTK would use GNOME instead of it's own versions of the
function (or if you think the way you do it is better, we accept patches for

then you have 2 versions of thing is memory if you run under KDE, no matter
if it's wxGTK or wxGTK/GNOME, BUT, if running with GNOME apps, you get memory
savings and consistency between them

Why are you not sure about that? One of the purposes of GNOME is to make a

user gets consistency, if every app uses it's own homebrewed version, then we
are no longer following that goal
