Ok, that is very interesting. But I have hoped that C++ wrapping would 
end up in XFC++ and not in Gtkmm.

The problem is that not much happens there and I have not got the time 
needed. But if more people have focus on this project (like this things 
you are doing now) we may end up have just a little momentum :-)

But, I am looking forward to see what you come up with anyway, nice project.
