I'm not talking about doing a port of an *extra* toolkit, like Tk or Fltk.
That would be a lot of work and result in huge slow libs.

Anyone looked into Anygui (http://anygui.sf.net) or
PythonWin (http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/win32)?  WinCE is a
*SUBSET* of the regular Windows Win32 API.  PythonWin should be adaptable
to it.  But as I've said, I'm not Windoze or Python guru.

I already have a way to create nice and easy GUIs for WinCE using Squeak
Smalltalk, as I mentioned.  But with options available like PythonWin that
wrap the win32gui/api module (does it?) it should be pretty doable to do a
little (non-trvial) editing, without having it be a huge ordeal.

PocketScheme has an interface to the Win32 API like Python does, no easier
to use, other than the aspects of the Scheme languge that are easier.
