Can you explain where you see the difference with the situation with
GMP kernel?  If there is no difference, I do not see any reason to
avoid inclusion of the graphing part...

And again: AFAIK, on most systems it is possible to link DLLs in such
a way that the calling process does not need to know about DLL
dependencies.  But this still applies equally to kernel and the
graphing engine.

Hope this helps,
