I doesn't have gkt2 here yet... need to upgrade (or at least download
it), but I'll be glad to help...

Yes, I'm interested.

I have to disagree here :)
I already did some coding in gtk1 with perl and C, however IMHO QT is
much easier to code, in C or Python or anything. I like OO for GUI and
the QT API is very clear... 
   However, it's my opinion and I do NOT have looked at gtk2 yet... I
hope it's better than 1.2
