That was what (rather poorly, it looks) I was trying to get across.
Gnome has the advantage of using libraries that are often used outside
of Gnome-specific programs, which I meant to imply should mean that
there is a tendency away from needing as much code specific to Gnome.
I'm also leaning to implying (but I don't have specific documentation)
that it would involve less total memory required for comparable programs
of Gnome versus KDE when called upon outside of their normal
environment, but with typical selection of common user programs running
(which involves implying *A LOT* - I should have typed a lot more
there,) as other gtk applications would be more likely amongst that
collection, particularly with Mozilla turning to gtk now.
