Sorry, didn't mean to imply that I would ever put raw X code in with my 
code.  Will not happen.
However, there might be something I cannot do from GTK/GDK/GLib and I will 
need to call X
directly.  Should that happen I would put the X code in an appropriately 
named external
function so it does not hurt portability.  Please note that I do not expect 
this to happen, but you
guys do some really low-level things so I'm just not sure yet.

BTW, I'm hoping the GTK version will be good enough that no one will 'need' 
to write a native
win32 version.  XChat is really impressive on win32 and Gaim is getting 
there.  Might be there, it's been a long time since I've tried it.
