oh good grief, man... i think you're being much too pedantic, here... if we take 
your definition then all non-GUI programs are also nothing more than wrappers 
around BIOS and OS calls...

the main point, however, that was trying to be made is to cut the bloat by using 
your own libraries... like fpGUI... then you have only your bugs to worry about 
and not those of some library 5 levels down in the dll hell that you don't even 
know is in play and leaving a huge security hole open in your apps...

sometimes too much is too much ;)
