Well, I tried to restart the code, but there are two major 

- compatibility with other systems (bsd, unixes, ..) and 
the necessary installation of libraries

- personal lack of skills on gtk

And it is much faster to code, in fact. WebHTTrack was 
written during three consecutive week-ends. WinHTTrack was 
much more painful (one complete month for *core* parts) 
because I had to study all MFC classes before even creating 
a single window. Web interfaces are much simpler to handle, 
even if there are strong limits (especially with "live" 
user interactions)
