GTK hackers are working very hard to get the GTK widget and gfx libs up and running. They will be in a useable state soon, sooner if YOU help - especially if you have GTK expertise.
GTK hackers working on mozilla usually hang out in #mozilla on irc.mozilla.org.
The two libs will plugin into the NGLayout xpviewer with very litle pain.
Please, no more "death to motif" and other such inspirational messages, thank you.
