In principle maybe, but it isn't working well enough yet.

Interesting.  In my experience, it is working quite better than the
Athena widgets.  Which is one of the reasons I have been using the
Gtk+ port for years now.  For example, it has no problems using
Unicode in the menus.

Could you provide examples about things that work worse than with
Athena widgets?

The only thing I can think of is the display close bug that Gtk+ has. Are there other problems that keeps us from having --with-gtk as the default?
