I took brief look at Swig and decided that it wouldn't be sufficient
to provide a really good interface from Perl to gtk. One particular
problem was that it didn't seem to have any support for callbacks,
I suspect it would be hard to provide a perlish interface to Perl,
a pythonish interface to Python, etc., for something as complicated
as gtk without doing at least some of the interface by hand.
