Also known as the XForms library. This is a C library
providing a toolkit interface over Xlib
. It's been
around for quite a while, and is still in use by

XForms, while considered by most to be far superior

However the authors have stated they plan to release
the next version under the GNU General Public License
or similar open-source license.
