Well, please consider all I say with a certain amount of doubt since I'm
not a C++ developer (only did one C++ module, the rest was plain C) and
favor C (or Obj. C) over C++, but: Since you seem to like the Apache way
why not use it for the GUI as well. The memory pooling and eveything
prefixed with 'apr_' is actually part of the Apache Portable Runtime
which can be used independent from the Apache webserver (Subversion is a
prominent example for such a project). You just need to decide whether
memory pools[1] are a good fit for your GUI application.
 
Cheers, RalfD
