Does anyone know the actual differences between the two possible Gtk#
versions? I´m referring to "Gtk# for .NET" and "Gtk# included in the mono
framework". These two on MS Windows (I´m actually on a Windows7 box)

So far, I've seen these:

1. Gtk theming engines
1.1 Gtk# Mono 2.6.7: 
      Mono-2.6.7\lib\gtk-2.0\2.10.0\engines: libpixmap.dll (63K) &
libwimp.dll (93K)
1.2 Gtk# for .NET:
      GtkSharp\2.12\lib\gtk-2.0\2.10.0\engines: libpixmap.dll (55K),
libsvg.dll (53K), libwimp.dll (90K)

BTW, any reason not to have the clearlooks engine? (just wondering) Also,
why the differences in sizes, shouldn´t these be the same?

2. Gtk theming support (pixmap engine)
2.1 Gtk# Mono 2.6.7: 
2.2 Gtk# for .NET:
This is the same app, first one run as "mono gtk_theming.exe", second one
simply double clicking the gtk_theming.exe file in explorer.

3. Performance
See this link:  http://go-mono.com/forums/#nabble-f1542694 JPEG quality when
running gtk-sharp from .NET runtime vs Mono runtime 

4. Pixbuf loaders
4.1 Gtk# Mono 2.6.7: 
      18 pixbuf loaders loaded by default, including JPEG
4.2 Gtk# for .NET:
      13 pixbuf loaders loaded by default, NO JPEG

Any comments, feedback would be certainly welcome!
