Can I correct the above statement? In my opinion, reusability in
general is possible if the API lends itself to that. I'ts just a matter
of seeing if the API fits the need and then applying it in the correct
I don't think that it's impossible to use other libraries with gtkmm, if
that's what you're asking.
My original thought aobut not being able to mix widgets from different
libraries still feels true, but again, that's not to say that it may be
possible (today or later).
