I don't think one would necessary need to automate the GUI itself.
A lot of applications seem to have poor separation of the GUI, something
that the developers of GUI frameworks seem to encourage (not necessarily
as part of their evil plan). If the end result of designing a GUI application for
testing was that it was both easy to script and to port to another toolkit, as a
side effect, than I can see the possible benefit.
