Hmm ... one thing I would like to use with XForms is the OffiX
Drag and Drop protocol. 'Tho, according to the OffiX home page, the next
version of DnD will be XLib based instead of Xt, the current version is Xt
based and thus requires Xt. Actually, you can make a non-Xt based X app
as a "drop site", but according to the OffiX docs, it's a bit more
difficult making a non-Xt based X app a drag source.
