not even that, they use different mechanims ...

btw, Sebastian, have you taked a deep look at Gnome widgets ?

I mean, doing Gtk-only is a pain in the ass for certain things,
i.e. if you want to do a nice dialog box, in Gtk is around 50 lines,
meanwhile in Gnome are about 5 lines.
Gnome a _lots_ of high level widgets that are ready to use, in 
contrast with the low level Gtk widgets.

btw, I've just convinced to the author of gIDE going to gnome-only,
and I'm helping them now (in C) and is unbeliable how the code
is simplyfied.
