This defeats the proposed purposes for using glade.
Win32 has RC files to aide in the creation and storage
of dialogs, created by DevC.
Cocoa has NIB files to aide in the creation and
storage of dialogs, created by InterfaceBuilder.
I see no difference in using glade on the unix
platforms. Further, it is a standard library installed
by every Linux distribution.
Ideally, using glade will enable us to make prettier,
more user-friendly HIG-complaint dialogs with less
fuss and more quickly. If this comes at the expense of
some user not knowing that his AbiWord is linked
against libglade (coz in all likelihood it's already
installed) then so be it. It's a trade-off that I'm
more than willing and eager to make in order that our
product comes off looking more polished and friendly
with (potentially significantly) less effort.
Adding a 100k library dependancy for these purposes
should not be construed as bloat.
