It is mostly historic reasons.  In the old days, we were hoping that we
could make things toolkit-independent, but that turned out to not be
possible if we wanted a complete binding.

The Gtk directory is a relic.  The only one supported is the WineLib
directory.    The Window.Forms directory holds code that was originally
supposed to be "shared" across implementations.
