I am so selective in asking you because I would like to have a more
productive gui.
A thing that a GUI developer want is easy prototyping.
I want to

+ design the forms/botton quickly and bind the events in a sort of
automatic way.
+ create custom gui components quickly from current components.

It should make little sense to me having to code all the GUI in C++.
We are in 2011,
processors with CMP and parallel graphics processors, even in embedded
world (Cortex A9).

+i would aspect a language easy for non programmers gui (ie. qml, xml).
This will move the focus from programmers to graphic designers doing a
gui. This could be a
straightforward step to give them more work and free smart programmers
for hard stuff.
