Another JWM project

That's a tough question to answer, right?  What are the odds of someone electing to use JWM and not not having GTK3 on their system?  On the other hand, JWM is really low dependency, so so I could see keeping the dependencies of your project inline with that.

Yeah, I was thinking of staying away from using GTK since the whole goal of this session manager is to stay lightweight and have minimal dependencies like jwm. I think it's going to stay that way, but there aren't that many libraries written in C that just search the icons, I've only found one project called "xdg-xmenu" and I might take some ideas from that. Another problem I've faced is that ini parser I was going to use has a max line limit of 1024 characters, which is unfortunate since there is one line in index.theme that always going to vary with length, and the common papirus icon theme goes way past that. So I'm going to have to drop iniparser and keep doing everything manually. I might have to take a look at inih though, you can change the max line length at compile time.
