You're not serious, are you?  I appologize if you are making a joke,
I'm new here and still getting to know people.

For those who do not know, libglade allows the creation of a GTK window and 
controls from an xml file.  It is the exact opposite of code bloat...

I have certainly considered using it for the non-configuration related 
but I am not there yet (and there are problems with using it for this 

BTW, I use GLADE (the application, not the library) to design all windows.
I do not have enough time to waste it laying out controls manually.
