This discussion is in the wrong mailing list.  It should move into
octave-graphics.  Go through the archives and you will see that JWE made a
proposal for an Octave GUI API last year.  This year, I implemented a
proof-of-concept part of it with (threaded) GTK and posted the code.  As
usual, both John's proposal and my code caused very few interest (at least,
I did not see much reaction to them).
