On Windows it is quite decent, it is a thin layer on top of the native
Win32 API.   So if you want a simple Win32 app, it is ideal.

On Mac, you are slightly wrong.   There are two backends.   An X11 backend
and a Cocoa backend, so you do not need X11 to run those app,

That said, it contains both bugs as well as limitations based on the light
Win32 emulation.
