As an additional comment, please note that discussions about general
advantages and disadvantages/issues of external GUI libraries and/or their
implementation on a particular platform should be better discussed on the
fpc-other list. Obviously, advantages and disadvantages specifically
related to use of these libraries with FPC are perfectly on topic in this
list. I mention this because it wasn't clear from the question of the
original poster which of the cases he was asking about.
