I assume it does not work with MS Windows.  X specific calls in Gtk
are used, as well as a lot of X calls in the ordinary Emacs code for X.

The goal has been to reuse as much code unchanged as possible (see

Since I don't do MS Windows I don't know what effort would
be required to make it work.  If one used only Gtk code instead of
Xlib I assume it would run on MS Windows as well.  This is what I
started to do, but then changed to the current X specific approach.
