I was kind of hoping for an answer as to why this is so much better,
myself. When you have something that doesn't change, what is the
advantage of being dynamic? It seems like you unnecessarily re-do a
lot of work at every execution rather than doing the work once when
you compile. Additionally you add a requirement that libglade is
available. It seems like a really cool thing, and is something I was
unaware of, but I don't necessarily understand why it is so advantageous.
1.) you dont have to recompile your program to adjust your layout.
2.) I find it doubtfull that glade will always keep up with all the
gtk+. (wasn't there some deprication going on along those lines ? is glade
really planning to support multi-gui-thread applications on multiple
diplays once gtk+'s
implementations are finalized ? [the generated code in mutiple languages
theese are a couple of decent arguments; but I could throw in my own
3.) You get to write your own code an manage your own project without
auto-generated interferences ;-) if I wanted to have my code generated;
I would move from emacs to visual basic or something.
If you share my "personal opinoin" point 3; you'll find that the xml parsing
interface is an apropriate decouplage of responsabilities and a
(i.e. x/y and widget flags and all those definitions are "glades"
and not your problem).
