George Williams has, to the best of my knowledge, stated that porting
FontForge to GTK+ and/or QT/KDE would not result in any immediate
benefit in terms of functionality and would, therefore, be a waste of
I happen to concur with this opinion. I suppose that eventually
*somebody* will take up the reins and do a port to GTK+ and/or QT/KDE,
but I really don't think this is what is most needed at this time.
Getting the right functionality, regardless of the visual finesse of
the GUI, should, IMO, continue be the first priority.
