Does xcode format correctly ?
I'm happy to hack Astyle to get it close to the format rules if
your willing to work with me on it. I prefer command line formatters.
My point is it's a lot better to find a automatic formatter thats close then
document what you have to look for by hand then it is to format code by hand.
Right now I'm having to hand format this code which is not a productive use of
your time nor mine. I'm willing to load the code into any ide or emacs or run
any formatter program on it to get the format to match the rules.
But we should have a way to auto format the code that at least gets close.
I fixed what I could find but I'm a real believer in autoformatting and as I
said I'd be happy to figure out what the process should be to remove or lessen
the need for hand formatting.

In any case I agree these need to be fixed and I tried to fix as much as 
I could find.

No the gdk sources use GdkWindow etc for classes. This is right.

Yes and I expanded the comment the problem is the function was added
and probably should be a entry point into a resource loader but there
is no code for loading none code resources and I have no idea what the  plans
are are we going to have a platform independent resource loader ?
It placement is to invoke questions plus the main external class to override
right now is GdkFrame so this is where you could plugin your own resource
not that its the best place.

Not a problem but lets change this file one time its a lot of hand editing.
It should not be here either since its platform independent.
My suggestion is leave it alone for now lets review it later for moving up
into platform and fix it once. I'm not sure how you want it named do you 
want  VK_TAB to go to
We don't have to keep the VK_
I'm fine with changing it but lets do it once and move it up into platform.

Fixed I agree
