It does however ensures the glade markup is always available and it is
somewhat faster (because exo-csource does xml stripping). You are
(obviously) not forced to do this and load the config from a file, I
do this in Terminal to keep the binary size smaller. For components
that are started once, I'd personally prefer the 'safe' way and
include the xml.
