GUIKit is the Mathematica 5 way of doing user interfaces.  Mathematica
6-7 have support for building user interfaces which are better
integrated with the rest of the system.  GUIKit should still work, and
if it does exactly what you want go ahead and use it.  You should keep
in mind that Wolfram Research's development resources are likely to be
focused more on the Mathematica 6 integrated user interface features
than on the old GUIKit features.

If you find the integrated user interface support lacks features
(found in GUIKit or elsewhere) please send your feedback to Wolfram
tech support.
