I would love to get involved with an effort to put together FLTK programs
for desktop use.  I already use several FLTK and SDL based programs on my
system because they are fairly lightweight.  Would be happy to lend my
developing skills to such a project.  Let me know if there's anything
specific you need to help going forward with this project.

Also, I've been looking at the latest development of FLTK 1.4.x.  The
developers are making some great progress on making FLTK more portable and
on cleaning up the code.  I'm also hoping Dmitrij's oxy patch (extra theme
for FLTK) will finally be officially included.  I sent in a limited
version of the patch that works with version 1.4.x.
