(I guess you meant removing GTK-related portions of xfns.c as well?)

If you look at these two files, you will see that the GTK-specific
snippets in them are a few and far between.  Most of the code is
generic.  So I think making separate gtkterm.c/gtkfns.c will risk
duplicating a lot of code, something we already have with w32 and ns
ports, and such duplication is undesirable.  But maybe I'm missing

My understanding of this sub-thread was that the idea was to separate
GTK _architecturally_, not just making it yet another display
