Hi Zed,

Go ahead and fork it. I will lend a hand on maintaining Windows and Linux components. I am sure there will be volunteers to maintain the Mac OSX version.

I am currently building Claro on windows and linux to analyze its current state. Looks really promising!

Actually, I worked on the layout engine and bunch of the GTK components in Claro.  My intention was like your's, but yeah they took it in a really different direction.

I've been needing a GUI lib recently, and really thinking I'd resurrect claro with a fork to do what I wanted originally.  Only problem is I couldn't maintain the windows or OSX components.
