Apparently the Gnome/Gtk guys aren't out to make life of application
writers easier.  They're instead dedicated to making things easy/uniform
for the end user, which imposes severe constraints on the applications,
especially ones like Emacs which haven't been designed around Gtk's ideas.

They do wan't Gtk+/Gnome applications to behave and look uniform, I think that is a good thing for a desktop environment.

On the other hand, the GUI design in Emacs is awkward at best and doesn't fit well with *any* toolkit out there.
