Actually the components used by a component project are only used when running 
it as a project. When used as a component, its dependencies are the one 
specified in the component-specific tabs of the project property dialog.

In other words, even if the gb.form project uses gb.qt, the gb.form component 
requirement are any GUI component (gb.qt, gb.qte, or gb.gtk).

The project dependencies are written in the .project file, and are managed by 
the IDE, not by the interpreter. 

The components loaded by a project are just what you see in the component tab 
of the project property dialog, and do not depend on the components used by 
the component project.

I hope it was clear - it was difficult to explain that clearly in english.
