If you're to do a NLE, please do not use _only_ GTK+. Please use the
GNOME libraries (meaning the gnome-libs for the UI, and as Dan
suggested, the amazing Bonobo).
Nobody would think of doing a Qt-only application, one does a KDE
application. You will save a lot of time using the already existing
libraries, rather than reinventing the wheel for every special widget.
I'm eager to see this project starting. Good luck to you.
