Ok, that reply was a /little/ short and missing a smiley.

The GUI tookits I know (wxWindows, PyQt) contain demo programs that
should show the speed of the GUI tookit quite easily.

And if you want to create an abstraction layer on top of the GUI
tookit (like "template driven GUI system" suggests), then I don't
think you can avoid doing proof of concepts for your own evaluation
