Not gtk2 yet. I first tried to stabilize the 1.2 based version: the
more people use it, the more they ask for new features...

Clearly gtk is much more stable on unix.  Gimp works fine on windows,
but this is because gtk/win was ported in order to run gimp: other
applications may not work that well. The older gtk should have less

The upcoming version will have better windows support in the
distribution (msvc, not cygwin), but this of course doesn't solve
gtk's own problems.

By the way, gtk works very well on macosx + xdarwin...
(still waiting for ocaml's dylib, though)
