Since I haven't seen the source code for your FLTK2 bindings, I can't
say for sure why there would be such a significant size difference
between it and FXRuby. I am a little curious about how you're
handling things like overriding virtual function calls in Ruby, as
well as garbage collection related issues. I know that the code
required to support those things takes up a significant part of the
FXRuby code base.
Please do make an announcement when you get ready to release your code.
