Still, if wxWindows supports only the GTK+ platform and not the GNOME
platform then it isn't a GNOME tool, we don't want to call it a GNOME

We'd want to at least have it use session management, gnome_segv, 
and other things that aren't GUI-related. Otherwise it's a GTK+ library,
not a GNOME one. 

But GNOME is high-level enough to be really hard to wrap cross-platform.
