[Chicken-users] cross-platform gui toolkit

Something that we desperately need, IMHO, is a cross-platform GUI
toolkit. Several people have mentioned this at various times and for
plain application-delivery beyond POSIX functionality some sort of
GUI will likely to make chicken more usable.

It should be easy, dumb, straightforward. Simple, traditional event-handling,
a core set of easy-to-port widgets, a small and simple API. Backends to
various existing gui toolkits (Gtk, Qt, FLTK, Win32(?)) should be supported
using a greatest common divisor aproach. More funky abstractions can
be built on top of that and eggs could provide more specialized widget
sets, particular to a specific GUI backend.

I have a good deal of Qt experience, a bit of FLTK and generally not
enough resources to create this on my own (surprise!). I also am unable
to do any windows-related coding.

Would there be someone interested in taking this up or join me with
such an undertaking?
