Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

C'mon, any modern machine can build a full Gentoo system in a few hours and updating/maintaining it doesn't cost that much time and you can cherrypick the updates you want. Try to install Gnome on Debian or Ubuntu and you'll get Dia or even gnome-bluetooth with all the bluez stack.
