It appears that we can't rely on anyone else to provide and
support a GUI properly across all three platforms. If we
want one, it looks like we'll have to do it ourselves.

How about reviving and building upon stdwin? I quite liked
stdwin, despite its limitations, because it was small and simple,
and it worked on both Mac and Unix.
