INSERTNEWPROJECTNAMEHERE-gtk and *-qt I would be down for. If only 1
version could be done, I'd lean GTK as most of our tools are.

Really, I feel if we have someone to head the project (if it comes to
a new thing and not updating) that getting a solid plan with features
and a roadmap up for folks to see would be a big help to finding good
coders. People like to see plans. :)
