Annoying, but doable and unclean.  I would prefer not to see time spent on
an implementation like that when a native GTK port would not be much more
difficult (20%?).  But I'll still help as much as I can, whichever way
people want to do it.

If we do a native GTK port, then you could theoretically run Emacs on a
linux tty and get all the graphical goodness, which would be very cool. :)
