I don't feel that it's such a hard problem to port an application to
gtkmm 2. You can start by reading the PORTING document which describes
most problems you'll experience:

There are parts of your code that it's likely you'll have to rewrite,
e.g. code using Gtk::Text, Gtk::CList and Gtk::CTree will be have to
rewritten almost from scratch.

But really, I wouldn't worry much. Of course its going to take its time
to port the application, but consider all the advantages that your
users/customers will get by using a GTK+ 2 application instead, not to
mention the new wonderful APIs of gtkmm2 you as a developer get.

Not likely, that would require AI in many situations.

Ask on the mailing list if you are stuck with something :-)
