if SDL is common to most guest screens: I agree with you
that the gui/toolkit should overlay the SDL.

Yet Fabrice mentionned months ago this was not his
intention, so we should respect it and (hopefully) close
this long thread.

Close the thread? Please not - I think it's good that many people posted their ideas about a GUI, and maybe there will finally come some agreement about the techniques and libraries that should be used.

And if Fabrice doesn't want C++ in the tree (seems a bit reasonable), then there's still GTK. And if it is too difficult to install and run a GTK GUI under Windows, then a native Windows GUI is still possible (after all, the Mac OS X version uses a native GUI toolkit as well, so why not do the same under Windows, and use the GTK frontend under all other platforms).

Btw. it would be interesting to know what features would be required to get a GUI into the Qemu tree, and what would be a total showstopper... Maybe the people with commit permission could comment on this :)
