When GTK is said, I've to advertise GTKpas

It is an object oriented wrapper around GTK. This beautifies programming
a lot. The disadvantage is a little speed decrease and that GTKpas is
not really ready. But I've written a program to display 3D
electromagnetic waves with it, so, it is usefull enough.
