What dependencies are you talking about? GNOME doesn't mean anything in terms of dependencies, it's just a scary strawman. gnome-scan depends on very common things: GLib/GIO, GTK, Cairo, fontconfig, gegl, GIMP libs (and GConf, but it's going to die in favor of GLib's GSettings anyway).

So it's really not pulling the whole GNOME desktop. Don't be fooled by the names - and please avoid this kind of reflex reaction against other projects.
