WTF. First I have trouble parsing your sentences. Second it doesn't make
much sense what I did recover from them. wxGTK is named so because it is
wxWidgets for GTK and even the upstream versions is named -- oh wonder
-- wxGTK. Adding a bunch of other toolkits wasn't a needed feature and
until someone steps up to do the work, I don't think anyone who dealt
with this package before is very interested in doing so.
