but I'm still developing MultiGnomeTerminal (MGT),
my idea is to finish the work on MGT and then to switch fully to Gnome
2, anyway I can actually apply all my patches
to zvt widget.
I also remind you that I have write access
to GNOME repository though I prefer still to submit patches
to you and give you the possibility to check them in

Debian Woody maybe still use Gnome 1.4 so I think it's useful
to offer with Gnome 1.4 a multi tabbed terminal, do you agree?
In any case I could apply all patches related to zvt
to both gnome versions (1.4 and 2.0), of course.

zvt has multibyte support too, isn't it?
but what's Xft?
