GIL is designed to solve a very specific problem - abstracting away the
image representation from algorithms applied on images.
A well-done and complete user interface library is a huge undertaking
and is very much orthogonal to the problem of image manipulation.
If you need a UI library, one pointer for you are the Adam/Eve libraries
They are open-source, very much Boost-friendly, cross-platform and
widely used commercially (we use them for our products too). We are also
working on having a GIL integration with the Adam/Eve libraries (the
picture widget will be a GIL image)
