In addition to gtk-- and WxWindows, there is V, a LGPLed C++ GUI library, that
is being ported to gtk.   Also GNU is aiming to support the "free Qt" (Harmony)
project, which in turn may be associated with the Offix toolkit (also LGPLed),
so C++ lovers will have no shortage of choices.. I guess the important thing is 
not whether Gnome uses C++ or not, but to get all of them to agree on standard
protocols and services so they can all work seamlessly with the base gtk-
based Gnome desktop...
