I can't because I only use octave minimally.  Maybe somebody 
else can.

No.  Gnucap does not use GTK, and in future might only use it 
indirectly.  GTK is a graphic library and Gnucap has no 
graphics, thus no need for a graphic library.

On the other hand, a graphic plugin or graphic utility program 
needs a graphic library, but it would remain optional.

I don't know .. never used GTK myself.  There is probably a 
simple demo program in the GTK docs you can look at.

I see more than one student interested in the graphics.  That's 
good in a way, but I recommend that you don't compete against 
each other.  Pick projects different enough that we need both.  
One using C++/GTK, the other using Octave are different enough 
that we might be able to justify funding both.
