It's accurate to say that I've done little with the DWT linux port. 
There's been a lot of debate this way and that, and I've just lost the 
will to progress on it alone.

If the community can come up with a decision on this, where more people 
are willing to support and contribute to a GUI project, whatever it may 
be, I will be very willing to lend a hand to the best of my ability.

That said, I've been guilty of helping out more with DUIT than with DWT, 
probably mostly because Ant's been so active with it and a couple others 
were lending him a hand.

I'm interested to see where people want to go as well. Meanwhile, 
lightweight projects like Harmonia, that have active development and 
interest, probably wouldn't be exceedinly hard to port to different 

Interestingly, despite having so many people say they are interested in 
DWT,  ports of the GUI Framework have garnered very little support.
