re. wxGTK

If you are already tracing through GTK+ --> GDK --> X11 then you only have one more layer on top of it (wxGTK), however you can use some (not all) C++ techniques which will speed up the coding (there's always a trade off). Plus wxGTK code is quite easy to port to Windows. However if you program in straight X I can only say that I feel sorry for you ;) .
