You mean maybe a basic table widget like the one included in QT, with the
basic memory management and very basic features. GtkSheet is not heavier
than gtkclist or ctree (actually I think is lighter). Besides, as I said
before, gtksheet has proven during the last two years to be very robust,
and adding it to the distro wouldn't require much work. OF course I don't
know what the team has in mind, it was a suggestion, and the gtksheet
support will continue regardless what, until an equivalent widget comes up
to replace it.
