Strange you shoudl say this, since almost everyonce involved in GNOME
programming used to say to me I should use glade. I tried it and got
mystified since I didn't understood what happened. More documentation is
way better than how zillions of graphical builders.

C was invented for doing OS developement. To do app programming in C is
pure idiocy! Being forced to manage memory that way.... *shudder*

And C++ is just evil more refined...

But are there any good alternatives? And I mean compiled alternatives.
What's the state of the Common Lisp bindings? (yeah I know guile exists,
but it's not that great actually...)
