Essentially there is nothing inherent in puppeteer which would 
tie it to gtk. Except for the following things.

The puppeteer uses some socket code. Such code is different among clients.

If I would just use unix soket API I wouldnt be sure the it would compile
on windows, shmindows et al. But this required me to become platform dependant 
just higher level. Because sdl, gtk etc use different socket related mechanizms.

So I have chosen gtk because I am on debian woody and the spectator
(is that the correct name?) was not yet implemented when I started with freeciv 

I agree that there should be gui-txt 
and that one of the possible way of implementation is through puppeter language.

This is on my TODO list for the next one or two minor digit sub-versions.

I wanted to put unit ID to canvas under each unit as it is done
for names under each city. 

That should be done for each gui separately. So I chosen the one I used.

Right when I'll get some free night this gtk-related part 
will be polished a bit and submitted as a separate patch to gtk-client.
