	TkStep is good for apps the use tk, like tkirc, tkdiff, tkapache,
etc; but I would *highly* suggest using gtkstep.  Gtkstep is a partial
code replacement to gtk utilizing a *real* NeXTSTEP replacement look.
Don't be fooled by the gtk step theme, it is crap and does *NOT* "look"
anything like NeXTSTEP, as it only changes the look and not the actual
dimensions and widgets.
	Saying allthis, gtkstep does not appear to be out (hopefully just
not yet) for gtk 1.2.x.  So there you have it - my &0.02.
