Nice of you to say. Honestly, I feel like I'm hogging the bandwidth here and 
should get back to work.

Starting next year, I anticipate others will create independent GUI 
front-ends for CinePaint based on other toolkits much like has happened with 
Xine (FLTK, GTK, Qt, SDL). Our new CinePaint architecture that separates the 
interface will make doing that much easier. We're very embracing of 

FLTK is the best choice for our core studio CinePaint constituency for 
reasons that have already been discussed at length elsewhere.

I'm already doing that with people who are reasonable and want to work 
together in harmony. In fact, that's why I'm here.
