Am I mistaken that the differences between gtk and other native
graphics code is exposed to lisp? That is, the lisp widget library
knows about them?

In general this is incorrect, the same lisp code works on Windows, GTK, Motif and Athena. However, its fair to say that some things are more fully implemented on some platforms than others.

Bill's comments about geometry managers while true for X-variants and Java do not apply to Windows. So I am pessmistic about attempts to push more of the work out to the widgets. I certainly do not believe that we should start using GTK etc on windows to solve this problem. I think Netscape's 6 use of non-windows widgets is a disaster since it makes the application a) very bloated and b) not look like a windows app.
