Hi all,

I'm browsing through the GNOME developer manuals and I find out that the
GNOME libraries has a lot of good stuff that GNU Backgammon is currently
missing. At the same time GNU Backgammon utilises a lot of the GNOME
libraries already. Since all our widgets are in GTK, I don't think it
will be much problem of interating GNU Backgammon to the GNOME desktop.

Discussion: Do we really want that?

On one side, I think the gnubg project could benefit on makeing based on
GNOME the componets, like gnomeui etc. The interface could benefit in
the way that it will be using the GNOME standards, and the users will be
therefore be familiar with the menu systems etc. We can simply add drag
and drop functionality, and maybe a MDI could be implemented simpler as

On the other side. If it depend fully on GNOME, users who don't have
GNOME will be annoyed I guess. I don't think GNOME is portable to
Windows so there must be a lot a #ifdef to make it compile on windows.
Someone will also compile without GNOME support on GNU/Linux systems,
and I guess we need a lot of #ifdefs to make this.

Is it worth the effort?
