Thanks for correcting me, I guess I was misinformed about that.  I had
thought it was an abstraction layer on top of the KDE and GNOME
libraries instead of a project to standardize the APIs and get rid of
desktop-specific calls (widget toolkits excluded, of course).

Yeah, that's what I was worried about, that in KDE or GNOME it would
be fairly straightforward, but if components started getting mixed
that it would be too complex to figure out exactly what it should do.

Anyways, thanks for the responses, guys.
