    Don't forget the 5 in QT, 3 in ncurses, and 1 in tk.

    But still all would be using the same backend which in the end I would think is a good thing... Still, probably too much hassle for them to bother.

    Yea, I know. I agree with your idea, i think it'd be awesome, turning steam into some sort of downloading technology, (BT like), and having people write custom frontends for it, but i think valve likes to have centralized control of their steam clients.

    ...and damn, that's right, i forgot about those. Didnt Trolltech got bought out by another company btw? So tcl and tk are from one company now, i think.

    Except Tcl and Tk have nothing to do with Trolltech. Trolltech develop Qt, and Nokia own Trolltech now.

    ... I knew I was opening a can of worms with that one. Oh can't forget Swing...

    Personally I would hope someone would write a frontend completely in spl, that would warrant a read through.
