I'm glad you pushed your ideas down to implementation. It's a
rather impressive work. Congratulations! That new gtk2-perl will
probably ease up the extensibility of the project - even if
stabilizing to the same level of usability that current gtk2-perl
should not be an easy task. Good luck for the future.

Me too.
I have always said that I would accept hard technical reasons not to
use inline while political reason would have no weight. Show me the code,
and muppet did so! :-)

I think we should put muppet efforts in CVS f.ex. with the module name
"gtk2-perl-xs" and continue hacking in parallell modules.
If or when gtk2-perl-xs surpasses gtk2-perl in functionality and stability
we can decide to switch the official releases to gtk2-perl-xs and deprecate 
the inline based module.


happy hacking
