} I think the design should be abstract enough and powerful enough
} to be implemented easily on top of many more than one of the
} popular toolkits and native API's. Otherwise, why bother?

I'm inclined to agree. Still, wxWindows already takes care of portability,
so why reinvent the wheel? Concentrate on getting the API right and
integrated with the STL and Boost and the underlying toolkit can be dealt
with separately.
