Might this be implemented at some point?

It would be a bit difficult... (How difficult is for you to explain why you need this feature and can't live with two or three GNU Emacs running on your system? Is your system a restricted mobile phone or such?)

You need food and water to work, GNU Emacs needs library functions to work. You can live from dead animals and dead plants, no way for you to live from solar energy, electricity, ionising radiation, mineral oil and natural gas (like a bivalent car), methane, hydrogen, sulfur compounds.

GNU Emacs can live from GNOME/GTK, X11/Xaw3d, GNUStep/OPENSTEP, "Aqua," "Carbon," AppKit, Motif... It should work to integrate an abstraction layer to help decide which library function of the same API name, which Look And Feel is to be used. And modern computers have large disks and vast memory, a 1 GB GNU Emacs should work in such an environment.

It's also possible that in a world of multi-core CPUs once a GNU Emacs service will run on a dedicated core offering this or that Look And Feel.



How many Microsoft engineers does it take to screw in a light-bulb?
They just redefine "dark" as the new standard.
