Skinning should be relatively easy with both wxWindows and GTK. What
problems hav you found with wxWindows? I know that they just put out an
update this week. GTK is very nice too, but as far as I am aware there are
no complete Win32/Mac ports

By the way Scott, is there a location where I can find the work and
discussion of the transport writing teams? Or is it just a matter of waiting
for jabber.org to be updated?
