Why don't you just do this by adding another port of GDK (in the
unstable development version). We already support Windows,
framebuffer, etc. in addition to X.

Drawing abstraction should be on the GDK layer, which is the window
system abstraction layer. So most likely if it was in
gtk_button_paint(), no.

Have a look at the gdk/ and gdk/x11 directories in GTK+ devel version
to see what's up. If you want to add a window system or drawing kit
port, develop a patch against CVS HEAD.
