Little semantic confusion here :)
He said it *IS*  a freedesktop project.  Which means it is not a gnome 
project, which seems to me to be true.

Projects should be judged on merit, irregardless of who pushes it.
If gnome is using it and that makes it grow acceptance, thats a good thing in 
my book.  Why; *because* acceptance is growing. I don't care if its gnome or 
any other player pushing it.

That said; Cups also depends on colord. And IMO that has a bigger impact than 
the gnome components that pull it in.
