An overview of the markup language I'm working on for building user interfaces in GTK.

@flyingpimonster Did you do a survey of other languages possibly suited for the task? DSLs are easy to spin up, but require a lot of work mid-term as they get more popular. The Nix community has been bitten by this, for example.

@piegames I did consider using something like YAML or even a simpler XML schema, but I decided it would be too complicated to fit GTK's widget model to them. I *was* partly inspired by QML.
