Huh? Well, of course we have build widgets on top of the toolkit we
use. What are you trying to prove here? I fail to see your point.

I don't agree. I do think that GIMP and GTK+ are in fact still more
tightly coupled than you receive it. GIMP developers are constantly
contributing to GTK+ and they do take part in decisions made for
GTK+. At the same time GTK+ developers are giving the GIMP developers
a hand when it comes to improving and debugging The GIMP. The two
projects are not as diverged as perhaps gimp-print and gimp.
