This has all been discussed before. We stick to wxWindows, period.
What exactly is involved in using gtk2 themes ?
Does any code in gnumed itself have to be changed or is just a matter of using 
gtk2 and the theme instead of gtk1 ?

I (personally)  would rather see the demographics widget completed.

Changing toolkits leads nowhere.  

Qt won't automagically solve our most obvious problem.
It's not about how we code but what we get done.

We stick to the Terry client. Why ? Because it is already there. You can't 
beat that. I do not any physician here in Germany who has chosen the program 
for its GUI. They consider features and price. So I urge you guys to postpone 
this question till later. 

As far as I know one design goal is GUI abstraction. Because of that it should 
not be hard to write different clients later on. We need to concentrate all 
resources on one client right now. Unless the current client is really crap.

But it is not !!!
