Hi Andrew

This is cool :). A patch would be great. Is there any way this can be run on a 
regular Linux machine?

There have been many changes to the GTK interface since your copy of the 
source (mainly for frames). Hopefully they won't cause you problems.

Let us know if you have questions on the code or we can help. Unfortunately 
the source isn't well documented. We use our own form inputs so that we can 
support CSS fully on them, scale them, print and export them, etc.
