I'd agree totally, but wxWidgets is C++, isn't it? That means we'd need
a C wrapper unless such a thing already exists.

I don't agree totally. In my opinion, GTK is not really any
portability problem at the moment and wxWidgets is only portable
because of allot of preprocessor statements and functions that turn
out to be preprocessor macros (and it's C++). So, my opinion, GTK
doesn't look bad on windows, and wxWidgets doesn't introduce more
portability (only a more native look). Also note that there is no gst
running on w32 at the moment and this is *not* due to GTK.


I totally agree with you
