C++ isn't a design methodology.  It's a language.  And compiler
flakiness is a very good reason to discount a language.

OO is a design methodology, and Gtk+ is OO.

Good idea, and afaik there's a Gtk+ DPS widget (using GS's DPS) being
worked on.  Color management is still a problem, since most of the
schemes are fairly proprietary, as I understand it.  But Gtk+ should
definitely have all of the power in any other toolkit... patches are
accepted.  8^)
