If you removed all of them gparted would be rather useless..

You are being quite ridiculous, Richard.
That's like saying removing all the drivers under /lib/modules/*/kernel/fs

Quite obviously you would never do that.
You would install the toolkits that are relevant to the file systems that
you do

Well, no, the kernel has modules for absolutely everything. It looks if
you have them at run time, not install time.

Just as I could 'zypper rm' the kits for any FS I don't want to use (such as
BtrFS) I can remove the unwanted entries from /lib/modules/*/kernel/fs if I
want. That they *ALL* get dragged in whether I want them or not just further
illustrates the point Rodney and I are trying to make.

I run 'bleachbit' occasionally.
One thing it can do is removed unwanted localizations, language files for
languages I don't use. Even so, there are Dot-desktop files that are bloated
with unused, unwanted language entries that bleachbit can't clean out.
Perhaps a later, more sophisticated version will do that.

But I don't. I usually don't care. Disks are big, no need to trim.

And yes, I don't have GParted.
More inadequate design that would bring in more unnecessary bloat.

Why should I use GParted to shuffle partitions back and forth when I can
use the
immensely more flexible and capable LVM?

Because it is a very good partitioner that handles about everytype of
disk. Even LVM!

Again, you are missing the point.
With LVM I don't need any of the partition tools such as GParted.
I use 'pvcreate'.
From the man page:

Why not, if you can use gparted instead? One tool to rule them all? :-P

And then, inside the PVM big space there are smaller spaces that contain
filesystems. One for root, another for home, another for swap... And you
can do them with gparted.

Guessing, I have not tried.

Or with YAST.
