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.
