Just asking, how much of GnomeSword is Gnome-specific, and how much is just 
GTK+?  Would it be easier to port Gnome-specific parts of GnomeSword rather 
than updating an old frontend?

Also, what advantages do the Gnome libs provide GnomeSword as compared to 
something more cross-platform (or are they already cross-platform)?  How much 
Gnome integration would be lost if it were made completely cross-platform?

Just throwing out ideas.
