When I say identical to Gtk+, I'm talking about the functionality, the
concepts, etc. (struct-iterators, method names, etc...). This is what
now is Gtk#.

But I think that we must change the design of, for example, Iterators.
Also we can get out the use of GLib, because I think that all classes in
GLib can be obtained from CTS.

See you,
