Making a proper GTK backend will not remove the reason that people
build with lucid, which is wanting emacs to be able to survive X
disconnects, unless we have evidence that proper GTK works in that

It will help with things like HiDPI autoscaling, and maybe frame

Someone in this thread mentioned they were working on a 'proper' GTK
backend, is that anywhere near useable yet?
