I like gnumeric a lot also. The only fear is that GNOME will someday
manage to infect gtk as has been tried already.

The official suckless position of "gtk sucks" hurts things slightly here
by failing to differentiate between gtk, which is large but good and
non-invasive, with GNOME, which is large and horrible and domineering.
