Heh, here is little misunderstanding i think.  egx is planning to be
widgets library written in Emacs lisp, using xlib.  It will be like
GTK, but using Emacs lisp xlib, so writing X applications on Emacs
lisp, will be simplified.  However i think using XEmacs frame as
embedded editor widget will be also possible, because they run in one
process afterall.
