FYI, this is absolutely not a sound way of judging software quality.  Some developers add a lot of FIXME comments when they are writing the code, some don't, some only do when they feel like it.  So counting FIXMEs says *nothing* at all.

To put it into more perspective:

> 1) "The code does contain a fair amount of "FIXME" comments. Note that a couple of those are for either deprecated functionality (that will be removed in the future and is only really needed by legacy applications) or for things that are very X11-specific and will not work natively on the Mac." --

A lot of these FIXMEs are for deprecated functionality or very X11-specific things.  You will see a lot of FIXMEs disappear in the GTK+ 3 branch.  Again, it says nothing about the actual quality.
