That sounds like a good idea. You'll be the first person to really
work on zvt in years. ;-) Why not work on the gnome 2 version? Are you
still unable to compile it? I don't think many people are going to
ship gnome 1.4 again. Most patches probably apply to both versions,
though, so working on 1.4 is still useful. You probably want to have a
look at the "libzvt" bugs in bugzilla, as well, to see things that
need doing.

There's also a "vte" module in CVS that's a different terminal widget
Nalin is working on.  Zvt will definitely be used for gnome 2, vte is
in the gtkhtml2/metacity/etc. category, it's sort of an experiment. I
have no idea if we'll ever use it, but I want you to know about it in
case you're interested.  IMO it's interesting due to Unicode support,
Xft, and some other random stuff.
