I agree with you on this point, but if GTK is already installed, the
current installer makes a mess of it.  I would recommend that the GTK#
installer install GTK to a standard location and install GTK# as well.
Of course you can always use things like Wise installer to download GTK
if required, like MS do.  Would there be any interest in a native Win32
installer shell ala IE6?  

Momentum is important. With the right tools, I hope for great things for
