I tried Zest in pur E4 environment, i.e. without compat layer.
It works when getting rid of org.eclipse.ui dependency and adding swt/jface instead.

Zest uses org.eclipse.ui.services.IDisposable: I could not identify where that interface is really needed in the Zest code.
I would like to inline IDosposable.dispose() method into the various Zest interfaces or refactor it to a Zest ownable interface if there is really need for it.

Any thoughts?

That's a known issue (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=261662) that cannot be fixed without breaking API. As Zest 1.x is in pure maintenance mode that is currently out of scope.

True, but GEF4 is a bit over-engineered for my requirements.

I think it can be done by creating a fragment that just contains org.eclipse.ui.services.IDisposable and use that fragment in pure E4 environments. In E4 with compat layer, you could exclude that fragment as it (the package) will be provided by the platform.

It would also be bad if users would start patching the original code and keep them in their own code repositories.
