Yes, it is the right thing to do, and am myself pretty interested in
making this happen.
But the way I want this to happen is to create a new `sdk-tools'
directory where we will be placing the GUI tools for Mono: monodoc the
GUI component would go there; heap-view; Mono-prof; GNunit and so on,
if folks dont mind, we could put there also typereflector and a GUI for
So we have a single "module" that depends on Gtk#
Lets look at this issue after 1.1.4 is officially out.
