And that's going to be a major problem with regards to the OSX community 
accepting Mono/GTK# apps in IMHO.

The Mac favouring Mono hackers would be doing us a great favour if they 
could commit some resources to a 'native' OSX GTK port. The current 
ports are pretty stalled. GTK-OSX is nearly there but is only GTK 1.2,
GTK-Quartz didn't get very far at all.

The problem is that porting GTK needs some experienced GTK / X11 hackers 
to help out. People who know exactly what events should be fired and when.
