Re: [Gnash-dev] multiple GUIs

I'd like to enable multiple guis build too.
I'd name them gtk-gnash, sdl-gnash, fb-gnash etc. etc.
The rationale is that sometime you really want two or more
versions. For example, a framebuffer AND a gtk based gnashes.
Also, we know that gtk better integrates into the firefox browser,
so it is good if each plugin can call the better integrated gui...
We might have a 'gnash' shell script that takes a --gui argument
and fails if that gui is not available, and have some smart default
like starting the fb gui if not in an X context etc..
