Not speaking for wmperry, but for me it means replacing all X calls with GTK calls. Basically this is the functionallity of lwlib and at least the functionallity of these files:

    widget.c xfaces.c xfns.c xmenu.c xrdb.c xselect.c xterm.c

That is a lot of code to duplicate.  It is not necessarily out of the
question, but I have to ask: can we avoid any of it?

Perhaps xselect and xrdb at least could be used with GDK.  And why not
xfaces?  That code has very little to do with actual output.

I'm sure there is reusable code in there (as others pointed out). But these are the files that needs looking in to. Some of these are HUGE (xterm.c is 14800 lines, jikes :-), I really wouldn't want to duplicate all of it.
