I doubt there will bt a gtk2/gnome2 port any time soon.  It'd be about
as easy as porting KDE to gtk2...

This I've not clue on how easy/hard/feasible it would be, but it would
certainly be nice.  Then PCGen could look pretty on my machine.  ~,^

Just as a note, making it run on GTK won't make it *act* like a GTK
program; custom dialogs will likely have buttons in the wrong order, the
interfaces as a whole most likely won't be designed around the HIG, etc.

I've seen no study to support it, but I'm imagining it may be better for
users for non-native GTK2/GNOME2 apps to appear different, if for no
better reason than to make it more obvious they won't behave as they
expect.  I could very well be extremely wrong there, tho.  ^,^
