Yeah. :-) However, you can build metacity to not link against or use a whole
chunk of extra stuff (it's not strictly 'GNOME' stuff anyway), and I'd guess
that it would strip down to be on the biggish side of the minimal window
managers. After all, you're linking against a complete GUI toolkit (so this
makes sense on embedded systems that use GTK+, which is why it was done).
