I am interested to know what people think about GUIKit - the 
documentation seems really vague to me, and just relies on examples, 
most of which are so complicated that they are stored in stand-alone 
files! Furthermore, because everything works with string options, you 
can't even query the individual tokens!

Maybe it is easier to create GUI's using J/Link - does anyone have any
