I used wxWidgets a lot a couple of years ago when contributing to a midi
sequencer. My opinion is that there would be no gain in converting any
GTK project to wxWidgets. GTK is already cross-platform. wxWidgets uses
GTK as its native peer set. Thus, wxWidgets is a subset of GTK,
widget-wise anyway. Starting a new project from scratch is a slightly
different story.
