FWIW, I actually like Ross' (and therefore Chas' also) suggestion best.

I'd like to see a Perl wrapper that sticks very close to C, and then something more Perlish on top.

Of the things I like least about gtk, the top one is its verbosity. I mean it's really painful to read gtk code. A good Perlish layer could go a long way to alleviate that.

If it was a completely separate layer though, is to possible to transparently overlay, e.g., the 'notebook_append' function with a new (Perl) function of the same name? If you can (and given enough magic Perl can do *anything*), is it wise to do so?

Thanks for all the good work! I'm looking forward to getting back into coding with the new wrapper.
