could call the 60 Gtk lines to do it, the 3 Gnome lines to do it, or however 
many WinAPI lines to do it.   The current approach is to make things with 
Gtk first, then seperate and add things like Qt later.  Personally I think 
this could lead to trouble, as there may be really killer differences in the 
libs that might cause a complete restructuring to accomodate, and that would 
probably mean the first lib that didn't fit wouldn't get done.  If, however, 
the development begins multi-lib, multi-platform, then any pitfalls like 
this get caught a lot earlier, and should guarantee a more flexible and well 
thought out design.

Agreed 100%
