I changed the cc list the patch should be there now hmm not sure why
it did not go on the initial submit.

I don't know anything about the layout test issues.

The patches relationship to the gtk port itself is minor its the one I
happen to use.
The gtk specific issues have a lot more to do with the changes to the
I'd be happy to refactor them so they where more flexible and could
handle changes like this.

If for some reason the layout test are considered a show stopper
perhaps I can do another patch using a different platform.
I'm on linux so a few are possible then come back to gtk specific
issues later technically its not much just messy.
