While I agree that the GUI elements within Gnu Radio leave something to be desired in terms of functionality and beauty, I think that concepts
within Gnu Radio+UHD are quite sound, and it would be a shame to abandon them.
I have my own application that uses Gnu Radio "under the skirts", but uses an entirely different GUI, based on XForms, and it communicates
with the Gnu Radio flow-graph (which was constructed with GRC) via both the XMLRPC server code, and FIFO files (although this is for
Linux, not Windows).
But you should also know that you no longer need to use Python to "string together" underlying C++ blocks. It can all be done from
C++ these days. There *are* some hierarchical blocks that were only implemented in Python, but all of the core "stuff" you can string
together using C++, instead of Python.
Feel free to build your application any way you want, but the fact is that, these days, just about *all* software has a daunting
dependency graph. Fact of life. You can either re-invent *everything* within your own code, so that it's standalone, or you can
rely on the excellent work of others, and focus more on whatever functionality you're bringing to the table.
