gal is basically just a bunch of widgets.  Except I wouldn't say
"just".  ;-)

gal contains e-table, which is a very slick model-view table / tree
widget (written on the canvas), and is heavily used in Evolution.
Compared to GtkCTree / CList, well... there's not really much of a
comparison to make here.  e-tree is usable.  ;-)

There are a number of other useful widgets, like e-text, the shortcut
bar (as seen in Evolution), etc., to choose from.

The downside of this is that gal is still under fairly heavy
