I still don't understand chicken completely so it might be a better
exercise to start anew. What do you think?

It is a huge job. Chicken has fairly unique FFI requirements (mostly to do with memory management) that make wrapping GTK+ a real challenge. (Also the design of GTK+ is itself working against you, fairly often.) If you were to start from scratch, perhaps SWIG might get you a fair way; I haven't yet managed to get round to experimenting with SWIG and chicken. If SWIG isn't going to work for wrapping GTK+, then in my opinion a from-scratch rework will end up repeating a lot of the code I wrote - but of course I might have missed a better way of doing things :-)
