There is a high chance yes.  And as far as I know Richard was
interested in integrating patches.

I did attempt once to do this.  The widget support is very simple and
could be done rapidly.  But Emacs uses Xlib calls to draw directly
into the screen in a number of places, and in GNOME you need to use
Gdk calls.

My understanding is that the Open/NeXTStep people have patches to
Emacs that abstract all of the drawing primitives.  So, I would rather
start from that work than redoing it all over again.
