Yes, but why *not* ?

In any case its not as simple as that is it? Some applications have
the option to be built with/without X. And why leave it at X. Why not
do the same for gnome, gtk, qt, whatever. I mean if you want a gnome
app surely you should know that gnome is needed?

I just don't understand the rationale for crippling the installer by
not giving it all the facts. How many bytes does it take to make X a
dependency on every X package?
