Well, since I do want to maintain compatiblity with gtk+, I will problably change the name of GString to something else. The two ideas proposed to me are: gCString and gnuString. I am leaning toward gCString, what do you think?
re: what about GString in glib?
I haven't used the gstring in glib, but the benefit of this GString is more for ex-windows programmers who want to easily port code (like me :). It's source compatible with MFC's CString so you just need to s/CString/GString/gi in your code.
