Because it's the same attitude that makes X11 and terminal interfaces
suck. "Just draw stuff straight into {Xlib, terminal}. Or get
{ncurses, gtk, qt, sdl, fltk, tk, whatever} to do that." What you wind
up with is either lowest-common-denominator shit like ncurses, which
makes everything suck, or you get little qt/gtk circlejerks, which makes
everything suck in different ways, or else you get both, and wxwidgets
is possibly the suckest of them all.
