I know about this. I program with OpenStep everyday. and done this thousands of time.
If you read my previous posts, I'm not advocating the use of native widgets, I think there should be theme that closely look like the platform it runs on. Essentially, on Windows it should look like it.
You're right, and therefore I am investigating. The problem is, I opened a Visual C++ book years ago and thought "Oh my god, WinApi is not for you" and decided to keep it closed and dusty till I die. So I really don't know at all.
However, I did GTK+ a little. After all, the only UI kit I know is AppKit...
Personally I don't think we should use native widgets, but only look like them. This should be easier. Maybe it could be possible to automatically generate a theme that matches the environment.
(for example by creating native widgets and drawing them into images that are then used to draw the controls).
Actually, I started a themer for GNUstep ~4 years ago that was to use GTK+ themes (I was using gnome a lot) but never got time to finish it and it has been deleted when I got rid of the pc.
