You are right, but we are also thinking about the library parts of GRAMPS. There may be parts that could be shared, especially after we get a nice separation between backend and frontend. In any event, this will come later, if it comes at all.
ah so like the gedcom handling but shouldn't just those pieces be taken out and made into site-package libraries? It seems heavy handed to make a different app that just wants to use a library of ours to have to install the whole app. Shouldn't a library be focused? ie one thing and one thing well. gramps does so many things that i'd think that seperating it out makes more sense... just a thought.
