Yes, the libs list for Galeon is pretty horrendous. But you seem to
be going to some lengths to miss my point, which is that "running GNOME",
as Niall intends the term, isn't required.
In fact, largely my point is that the terms "running GNOME" and "running
KDE" are illusory concepts that stand in the way of understanding the

Excuse me, no.
The list of libs dependencies for Galeon is ridiculously long, but
nonetheless doesn't equate to installing (or "running") GNOME. It means
installing a bunch of libs and some glue code. Compare that against the
entire marching band that is GNOME, at ftp://ftp.gnome.org/ and
elsewhere. Big difference.
