I posted my opinion on using GdkRgb in Ghostscript, in the LinuxToday article about Raph's open letter to the Ghostscript community. IMHO, GdkRgb is the best solution and those who see it as an attempt to force them to use "Gnome stuff" on their desktop do not understand the way GhostScript works or what GdkRgb is.

This is not new, but it looks like anything that mentions Gnome is flamed by KDE bigots, and vice-versa (yes, it does happen both ways). The interesting thing here is that the most vocal critics are not developers and/or show clearly that they do not understand what they are talking about. Sure, they want someone (who?) to fork GhostScript, presumably to create a highly productive KDE branch or something like that. What a bright idea! Sure, they could get rid of any Bonobo linking, but throwing GdkRgb away would be stupid.

Sigh! Even if you are careful about what you communicate (I think that Raph's letter was nice and explained very well that using GdkRgb would have no influence on KDE), some morons will find a way to interpret it in a different way.
