Though they're pretty tightly integrated. Glade is the recommended way
to build Gtk+ UIs. Indeed the libglade functionality is going to be
included in Gtk+ itself in the next major release.

So yes, technically they're currently independent components but for the
purposes of an intro tutorial I think it's fine to introduce them all as
one programmer's toolkit.
