Stetic already supports importing glade files. Right click on the User
Interface folder and you'll find an "import glade" option, although it's
very untested and may crash.

However, it's not just a matter of importing the files to the stetic
format. In Stetic the code for a window is implemented in a subclass of
the Gtk.Window, while in Glade we normally use a wrapper class.

BTW, I just realized that adding localization support to Stetic is very
easy. I only need to add Catalog.GetString() to every translatable
string in the generated code. I'll implement that soon.
