This is currently a possibility, but it throws away the ability to do
things possible when the toolkits do match (notably embedding the GUI in
another window, such as the presets/etc bar ardour adds to the top). It
is also not portable (depends on X11), assumes the concept of "window"
always makes sense(*), and has other problems.
In other words, this is a perfectly valid _implementation_ choice, but a
very poor _interface_ to define for plugin UIs. See my other recent
reply in this thread for details.
(* Think text-based UIs, UIs that draw to an existing drawable such as
Cairo or GL, etc)
