I suspect "Browser-based apps with offline capability", at least at
first. The Wave collaboration protocol is based around "16-bit
which seems to be an obvious nod to browser-based apps, although
obviously you can use wide characters in C as well if you like.
The server side code for google app engine supports Python and Java.
As you well know, projects like gnome-shell are rapidly blurring the
with GTK bindings these days.
ps. nice seeing your work on gobject-introspection; i've got a couple
more patches to push there which should continue to improve the power
of that stuff.
