On a related note for linux you have numerous window toolkit
kde/gtk/wxWindows and maye a few for win32 plus the possibility on the
mac/win32 kde/gtk port. I think it should be gtk/linux gtk/mac etc
with the cross platform toolkit dependent code above os specific code.
So my gtk code should live in a gtk root dir. And we may also have
generic linux specific code under platform/linux ?
