Sounds like an excellent way to get from here to there.

If people are interested in helping out I can put it
on SourceForge (CVS) or just a release area and my own
site. I have uploaded a snapshot tarball from yesterday to

Sourceforge this puppy.  With the method you have described it sounds
like it is very possible to have a lot of parallel development going
on.  Let volunteers sign up to take on a widget (let more than one

You don't really need to translate each widget by itself with Gtk+. Gtk+
has a definition language that describes its widgets, and you can create
the bindings by processing it with a script. No need to work on each
individual widget.

Anyway I can accept code and patches:
- new wrappers and function should have "use cases" == test that use that code
- patches should have a changelog entry explain the hows and whys

happy hacking,
