Re:Lightweight?

The 'L' in "FLTK" stands for "Light" so it might be lighter than GTK. I haven't done any comparisons to know though. Have there been any benchmarks or anything to see which toolkit is the most "lightweight"? I've never heard anywhere that QT is more lightweight than GTK.

Considering how far Xfce has progressed, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to start from scratch and rewrite though. It's looking great these days!
