Yes this is true [not all that likely I hope though:)]. But one can
take an interest in the project and follow it until it is ready for a
Gtk GUI then things might go smoother when porting...

Of course I intend to make GTK app and "port" them to Gnome when the
work, but I'd like too see the porting from a GTK app to a GNOME app
as easy as possible. I think this is important if we want people to
make gnome apps.

It should not be too hard to port the documents from LaTeX to SGML. I
like LaTeX, but I do not like SGML yet. Tried to get the hang of it
through the tutorial from the Gnome site, but I cannot say that I
found everything very logical.
