The sure don't have the consistency *I*'d expect because this means
that they don't integrate well with the respective native window
environment.  The fact that there is no single "native window
environment" on X is one of the banes of my life as a computer user,
as the Qt and Gtk folks have chosen not to integrate with Xt, and I
suspect it will take another 10 years until the wheel has been
re-invented once more.

I, for one, love MrEd, especially as the media classes don't seem to
have a counterpart in any other GUI toolkit, and many applications I
write vitally depend on them.

There's one single thing I miss: drag 'n drop.
