 I'm curious.  Is anyone using V++?  When I begin learning C++, I
think that V++ is the toolkit I will look into first.  It uses Athena
3d widgets; which could be extended and improved, from what I gather.

 I like how Athena widgets, under GWM, can be moved around by the
static parts of the interface, allowing frameless windows.  When I'm
ready to; when I learn more scheme/lisp, I want to make a tabnotebook
frame type for windows under GWM++.
