Well, that's (in theory) the development requirement, not the runtime

The runtime requirement is only moderately better, though.

I looked at the actual requirements (ldd) for libgtkxmhtml, and in
fact it doesn't depend on anything in gnome---I inherited the listings
of gnome-bin and gnome-libs-data from the prior maintainer.

I've got a *BIG* bug-hunt scheduled for gnome-libs in the days after
X-mas.  I'm working on it a little now, but won't be able to devote my
full attention until then.  At that time, I'll try and pare down the
unnecessary deps on gnome-bin and the like for this and other packages
(libart, etc.)  This will satisfy a lot of relatively-low-urgency bugs
