Maybe it is a stupid goal if you are not looking at the big picture
and you just want small pieces to succeed.  Granted, it gives you a
higher chance of overall success if you are just aiming at little
pieces.  But GNOME is a more ambitious project than a collection of
independent utility libraries that are orthogonal to each other.  

GNOME will be everywhere, and to do this we need to build on existing
frameworks and reuse as much code as possible.  We do want to stand on
each other's shoulders, not on each others toes.
