I'd probably roll with the web-app, especially if you're worried about it
looking "native". GTK can look like windows, but you mentioned difficulty on
macs. Of course I've never had my GTK apps /really/ look native on windows.

For the reason you mentioned, I probably wouldn't use curses, unless you're
not worried about it looking particularly "pretty".

However, with some type of web framework, you can easily make it look the
same cross-platform, with minimal maintenance and customizing (mainly only
required if you use CSS and any client runs IE).

Anyhow, that's just my 2¢
