No, but they don't go through GLib, but GDK, which is distributed as
part of GTK. GLib isn't really POSIX or X11 specific at all, and
trivial to port to Win32, Mac or whatever.

(You mean "same interface as GDK".) One would hope so. In fact, I
think people are working on GDK, and thus GTK, ports to Win32. I am
tinkering a little with it myself, too. No, don't ask when it will be
ready, or what the chances of making it actually work are... When
somebody has something ready for testing, it will be announced.
