You may be right, but before we jump to closure on this
topic, let me ask what would be the pros and cons of a Ruby
binding to Java's GUI, Swing?

I think the cross-platform support is more extensive than
GTK+'s (Java is supported on the Macintosh, for example).
Only a single interface would need to be done -- to the JVM.
And there's no lack of developers supporting Java / Swing
and extending its widget set.

Performance would probably not be as good as GTK+, however.
