.NET sounds a little bit like JDK to me. I only proposed to
implement a lib which abstracts Xlib, but without implementing
high level widgets by design - only implementing a communication
platform which is thread-based instead of the classic X way of
state-machine events or like the Qt way of signals and slots...
Something like a CSP-capable abstraction library to implement
windows or handle windows, libwin - and another one which
supplies basic drawing, libdraw.
