Bruce himself wrote the code for COAS to run on Gtk.  I don't know where 
the code is, but you might email him to see what the status is.  COAS is 
(from what I hear) going to be the 'official' system for Debian, which is a 
point in its favor.  If we want to be as close to Core compliance as 
possible, assuming the Core is influenced by SEUL and Debian relative to 
size (as a *theoretical* possibility), then we'd better start chasing COAS.
