RE: Looking for a program

I have recently become interested in developing a GUI toolkit for Octave
that is roughly Matlab compatible.  I was actually leaning towards GTK+Gnome
because of its potential future for Desktop & Corba integration.
Ultimately, Corba would provide and excellent interface to a plotting
program.  Unfortunately, at this time, such plotting programs are in very
early stages of development.

GTK is not as wonderful as one would like and the C++ interface is still
Qt+KDE have a new license (possibly) GPL compatible license, better C++
bindings, and are farther along in development.

I lean against TCL, TK, JX, or others because their future desktop
integration is questionable.

Any thoughts?

I would be very willing to code with someone on this as I will eventually
need some sort of GUI interface for my work (and I'd like to avoid Matlab).
