	We don't think about a alternative cross platform toolkit solely we are 
unsatisfied with our existing solution  it works great as far as 
StarOffice is a stand alone product. The motivation is that we decided to 
push the integration into GNOME desktop and therefor consider the usage 
of the same GUI toolkit. It could be a replacement or a alternative to 
the existing implementation.
