Correct. Since Gnash's GUI toolkit usage is pretty light, (mouse and keyboard events, a window to render in, and a control menu), it may not be worth the time when there is so much else to be working on. Plus the GTK part of the new library already works. :-)

At the same time there probably is an urge to give Gnash a much better user experience, so it might be worth adding preferences dialog boxes, and more complex UI components. At that time it might be worth then using the C++ APIs instead. I'm not a GUI programmer (I'm an embedded systems engineer by background) so this GUI stuff is all new to me. I'm much more comfortable reading binary opcodes and hacking assembler code than GUI programming. :-)

I'd love somebody whose brain is more GUI oriented than mine to take over the GUI layout and redesign... and make the Standalone player more like a traditional desktop application.
