According to Fabrice, the main reason for using GTK for the graphics rendering
is to allow the creation of a GUI using GTK. That is the only good thing GTK
has going for it. (In fact, getting GTK to do the stuff that the SDL layer does
on its own was a real pain. The layer is mostly GDK, and even the "low level
drawing toolkit" didn't have enough support for what qemu needs.)

I have never designed a GUI before (other than toy ones for my own use) and
I have no plans to write my own GUI (because I wouldn't do a very good job).
If someone else has a GUI that they want to integrate with this, or if someone
out there wants to write one on top of my GTK patch, that person will have my
full support as well as any help I can provide.

Infinite complexity begets infinite beauty.
Infinite precision begets infinite perfection.
