All of the applications that you mentioned are almost self contained -- they
largely don't contain external dependencies or assumptions about system
layout. Such is not the case for application which use more of the
"platform" such as GNOME or KDE applications or things built around them.
For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public
relations, for nature cannot be fooled.
