The most interesting cross-platform GUI toolkit I've
seen
lately (aside from the ubiquitous Qt and wxWindows) is
a new
offering from Adobe, the "Adobe Source Libraries"
(http://opensource.adobe.com/).  I'm not sure which
products
they use this toolkit in, but it sports native look
and feel
on Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows, and it is especially
compelling
because it is done as a DSL for GUI display (see 
http://opensource.adobe.com/group__asl__overview.html
for details).

Unfortunately, this is another C++ product, but it
might be
a good long-term solution (and as a bonus, more
esthetically
pleasing).
