i dunno if anyone could accuse gtk of being quick and efficient.  it sets the
standard, so you could say it's moderately quick, and moderately efficient.
that's the problem when you become the yardstick by which other people
measure.  you're no longer the fastest, best, newest.

it's certainly not quick and efficient when compared to something like fltk.
