I was going to uninstall gnome once, but realized quite a few packages I use have gnome lib dependancies (at least according to Spritz). It's the way they are compiled I guess. Even artsplugin-xine would get removed if I removed gnome! The way I was going to do it is just going to Spritz >> Installed Packages >> Search "gnome" >> select gnome-base packages >> tada. Sadly it removes a whole host of things I want so, I have no real way of knowing what actually depends on gnome libs.
For this I have thought about switching package managers to emerge and recompiling everything with new use flags. Although I like the ease of use entropy offers with binaries and update notifications. But I guess that's the trade off.
