Something can be completely free of all KDE code without having Gnome
dependencies. As a matter of fact, I stay away from Gnome for the same
reason I kicked every KDE library and executable off my system: Too
much monolithic entanglement, and now the requirement of accepting
systemd and swallowing it whole.

Claws-mail can be run without either Gnome libs or KDE libs.
