There was a time when I was young and naïve, and thought that GTK was
going to be the answer to Emacsʼ toolkit issues. That has turned out
to be somewhat untrue [1], so perhaps we should default to Lucid (itʼs
still pretty ugly, but I donʼt use menus or scrollbars so that doesnʼt
affect me personally). If Someone™ contributes a Qt port, that might
do as well (there was a port of XEmacs to Qt several decades ago, so
it definitely feasible).


[1] Thatʼs an understatement. GTK has turned into a total clusterfuck.
