I think the decision for a new toolkit is a crucial one and all
alternatives should be carefully compared. Many people dislike gtk
programming interface and many people (that is, I certanly do :) ) find
tcl/tk terribly slow (although nice looking).
I am not sure I can convince you guys to do *both* conversions ... But
perhaps you should think about the options, or discuss them.
Of course, I am going to just read mail in the mean time. :)
